Old School Gingerbread

This recipe is from my grandma’ old cook book from 1950′ , it makes your gingerbread rich in flavour and super crispy. It is also theatrical to make, wait and see what happens when you put the bicarb soda in the warm mix!


1/2 cup sugar

1/3 cup golden syrup

1/2 teaspoon ginger

2 teaspoons cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon cloves

150 gram butter

3/4 tablespoon bicarbonate soda

3 1/2 – 4 cups flour


1 Melt sugar, syrup in a pan and add ginger, cinnamon and cloves.

2 Take of heat and add bicarbonate soda.

3 Poor the warm mix over the butter in a mixing bowl.

4 Stir until the butter has melted then mix in the flour. Knead until you have a smooth dough.

5 Leave the mix in fridge to cool down 30-60 minutes. Just to make it easier for you when you bake it out.

6 Roll out the dough as thin as you can. Then take your baking shapes and cut out wished sizes and shapes for your gingerbreads.

7 Cook in oven 180 degrees for 8-10 min.
