So busy again as usual around Christmas.
I had full internship week, and also working at 2 jobs.
At my internship we made about roughly 200~300 dessertcakes of 1 sort.
Two days I was assigned to something specific like crème and chocolate whipped cream. (and made that like 7 times or more in huge volumes)
But for the first time I finally got time to experiment again. 😀
And I experimented with a gingerbread recipe.
It says happy holidays!
It looks a bit amateurish and I don’t know if I got the right recipe at all.
But it tastes great and it is also somewhat sticky/chewy.
Found the recipe on some german site and then followed half of the instructions and added some other things here and there.
(And besides coming short of certain ingredients I just guessed the oven temperature and time :P)
But it looks like a real gingerbread house at least, even though I never tasted one, saw one in real life or have even seen it made before.
- 180 gram flour
- 120 honey
- 1 egg
- 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 whole egg
- 1 1/2 coffeespoon cacao powder
- a little bit of cinnamon
- 1 ground up clove
- a little bit of ginger and nutmeg
Add it all into a bowl and mix until you got a ball, let it sit overnight in the refrigerator.
Next day roll it out to 3 mm (it will rise in the oven) and cut out the desired shapes. (Do make the roof a bit longer since mine was way to short.)
Bake it at 150 degrees celsius for 15 minutes.
If you have a better recipe, please let me know ^^ thank you!
Have a merry Christmas!!
