Gingerbread Recipe

Hi and welcome to Little Miss Holly, for this blog post I will be showing you my favourite gingerbread recipe, this is a delicious, quick, and simple recipe that is perfect for Christmas. It’s even great as a last minute Christmas present.

Makes approx 20 gingerbread biscuits (but I used quite large cookie cutters).


Plain flour (3 cups)

Butter, chopped (120g)

Bicarbonate of soda (2 tsp)

Ground cloves (1/2 tsp)

Ground ginger (2 tsp)

Brown sugar (1/3 cup)

Golden syrup (1/2 cup)

Egg (1)

Ground cinnamon (2 tsp)
Cookie cutters

Wooden spoon

Baking paper


Rolling pin

Baking tray


Preheat oven to 160°C

Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl with a wooden spoon

Knead until smooth

Roll with a rolling pin between two sheets of baking paper until about 1   1/2 cm thick.

Place on baking paper and on a tray

Bake for 15 minutes

Ice once gingerbread are cool

If you want to ice them, the Queen Decorating Icing Kit is great because it comes with 3 colours and 4 different nozzle designs, it is super easy to apply and you can create so many different styles.

I love this recipe because the gingerbread is so thick and so flavoursome.

I hope you enjoyed this post, if you have any questions or requests, please feel free to leave a comment.
