Ginger Bread

Nothing says Christmas more then ginger bread.  Kids and adults love it and it's a wonderful activity to do with the kids to get some Christmas spirit flowing!

GINGER BREAD

INGREDIENTS

150g Unsalted butter, cubed
 1/2 cup (125ml) golden syrup
 1/2 cup (110g) firmly packed brown sugar
 1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
 3 cups (450g) plain flour
 1 tablespoon ground ginger
 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
 1 egg, lightly whisked
 Writing fudge and rainbow choc chips, to decorate

METHOD

Step 1.  Preheat oven to 180°C. Line 2 large oven trays with baking paper.


Step 2.  Place butter, golden syrup and sugar in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Bring to the boil. Remove from heat. Add bicarbonate of soda and stir to combine. Transfer to a large heatproof bowl. Set aside to cool.


Step 3.  Sift flour, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and baking powder over butter mixture. Add the egg and stir until combined. Turn onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead until smooth. Divide dough into two portions. Shape each portion into a disc and cover with plastic wrap. Place in the fridge for 45 minutes or until firm.


Step 4.  Roll one portion between 2 sheets of baking paper until 5mm thick. Using a 6-7cm Christmas pastry cutters, cut shapes from dough, re-rolling scraps. Place on the lined trays, 3cm apart to allow for spreading. Repeat with remaining gingerbread portion.


Step 5.  Bake in preheated oven, 1 tray at a time, for 8 minutes or until just firm to touch. Remove from oven and set aside on trays for 5 minutes to cool before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Decorate gingerbread using writing fudge and rainbow choc chips, if desired.
