gingerbread dough


  1. oven 180oc/gas 4 for 8/10 mins at top of oven.
  2. *the syrup mixture must cool for about half an hour and the dough must rest also for a half an hour so allow some time in advance for this.
  3. *melt sugar/syrup/butter and spice slowly and cool.
  4. in a large saucepan.
  5. Beat an egg and mix the bicarb with water.
  6. Mix this into the syrup mixture.
  7. Start adding the flour slowly and mixing it all inches.
  8. It will start to get hard towards the end but just keep going. If the mixture is too still at the end part of the mixing , put your bowl over a bowl of warm water and this will loosen the mixture slightly to enable you to mix in the last amount of flour.
  9. Chill the dough in cling film for about half an hour and its ready to use.
  10. this dough is extremely versatile and will take on any shape or indentation, shape or pattern. See edible birthday cards.
