Recipe for honey gingerbread

Honey gingerbread is exceptional, easy to prepare and simple to replicate.

Ingredients for honey gingerbread:

  • 500g honey
  • 200g raw sugar
  • 10g gingerbread spice
  • 125g each of ground almonds/hazelnuts
  • 1 tbsp sieved raisens
  • 2 tbsp sieved currants
  • 50g each of sieved candied lemon/orange peel
  • 500g flour
  • 22.5g baking powder (1.5 packets)

After the honey has been heated and becomes fluid, mix it with the sugar, eggs and the other ingredients, then work it into a firm dough. Let it set briefly. Now roll the dough out until it’s a half centimeter thick. Cut the dough with a cookie cutter and place the gingerbread onto a baking sheet. Should you choose, garnish the cookies with almonds and other nuts. Bake the gingerbread at 150 degrees in a convection oven (or at 180 degrees using a standard non-convection oven) for approximately 8 to 10 minutes.

After cooling, the gingerbread can be frosted with chocolate or icing. Keep the gingerbread in a cookie tin.

The secret to our gingerbread

Use the best ingredients and spices. Create the perfect round of dough. The honey should be warmed first, then add the flour. Add the spices only after the dough has matured for two months…
