Gingerbread Day

CookingMyWay's picture

Hello foodie fans! Today is Gingerbread Day. I would have thought it would have had something more to do with Tanksgiving? I guess gingerbread is part of the big holiday season. Every year Maitlin and I build a gingerbread house - we make our own using a mold I bought one year a while back.



1 cup all-purpose flour, sift before measuring

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground ginger

1 egg, lightly beaten

5 tablespoons dark brown sugar

1/2 cup dark molasses

1/2 cup buttermilk (or use 1/2 cup regular milk soured with a teaspoon of vinegar or lemon juice)

1/4 cup melted butter or shortening

Sift together the flour, salt, soda, and spices. In a mixing bowl, combine beaten egg, sugar, molasses, buttermilk, and melted butter. Add sifted dry ingredients gradually; stirring to blend. Beat until smooth. 

Turn batter into a greased and floured 8-inch or 9-inch square pan and bake at 350° for about 30 minutes.

Love gingerbread-I use freshly grated ginger, ginger powder, and candied ginger all together for a triple treat ginger flavour. Haven't made it for awhile, Steve dosen't like sweets much but loves gingerbread if it is strong on the ginger. Kids love to mae gingerbread houses or the large cookies Ginger-bread-men.
