Ginger Bread

125 grams softened butter

1 cup brown sugar

1 beaten egg

2 tsp vanilla

1/2 cup golden syrup

4 tsp ground ginger

1/2 tsp cinnamon

1/2 tps cardamom

3 cups plain flour

1 tsp bicarbonate soda

Mix wet ingredients together. Mix dry ingredients together. Mix them all together. Knead it a little on a floured surface, until you get a smooth dough. Let it rest in the fridge for 1/2 an hour, then roll out dough .5cm thickness (or thicker if you prefer) and shape.

Bake at 190C for approximately 20 minutes, or until light golden.

Cool and then dress appropriately.

  1. How they don’t just turn cannibal and gobble each other up I just don’t know. In any case I know they wouldn’t last a minute in my household…particularly that dapper one with the hat and scarf.


  2. Thanks everyone πŸ™‚
    These guys were too much fun to play with. At one point I did wonder why I was crocheting a hat and scarf for a gingerbread man, but then thought…hey, ’cause I can.
    I had to stop my self from setting up a lot more scenes for the little guy. The Monkeys thought he was a hoot!


  3. I LOVE this! I decorate my gingerbread guys, too- but Have never thought to crochet (read knit, since I can’t crochet) a hat and scarf. So cute, Brydie! You’ve inspired me to step it up a notch!
