Today was Australia's Biggest Morning Tea a Cancer Council fundraising event. Chloe and I went to a morning tea at a good friends house and had a lovely time, eating, drinking and playing. In this spirit I thought I'd put up a recipe. Chloe and I have been going through a bit of a gingerbread man phase. The recipe is from a cookbook I had as a child hence the great aprons and wallpaper.
100g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
25g brown sugar
75g golden syrup
1 tsp ground ginger
More flour for rolling
Pre-heat oven to 190 degrees C.
Cream butter and sugar. Mix in the golden syrup and ginger followed by the flour and bicarb.
Roll out on a board to about 4mm thick using lots of flour or it will stick.
Cut lots of cute men and women and babies and decorate - we use little m&M type chocolates.
Bake for 10 - 12 minutes.
Put the kettle on and make a cup of tea. Sit down and enjoy.
