gingerbread house

the love house :] in the clean way thank you very much. hahahaha!
i didnt want to make a christmas theme as its SOOOOOOO far away from us atm! i love gingerbread! nomnomnom!!!

have a go. courtesy of my teacher michelle's special recipe. it works like a charm:

gingerbread house dough (1 gingerbread house)


  • 300g butter
  • 500g castor sugar
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 900g plain flour
  • 15g ground cinnamon
  • 7.5g ground nutmeg
  • 1.5g ground ginger
  • pinch of salt (optional)
  • 10g bicarbonate soda
  • 200-250ml cold water
  • lemon/orange zest or cardamon is optional too*

    with the spices. you can actually vary them to how strong you want the flavour. i love the ginger flavour so i put more in heehee!!! :]


  1. cream butter & sugar & syrup
  2. sieve all dry ingredients
  3. rub in butter/syrup mixture until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs
  4. make a well in the breadcrumbs, and ass cold water to mix and knead into a smooth paste - note: DO NOT OVER WORK IT.
  5. tightly gladwrap the dough, press it down into a rectangular shape, and rest it in the fridge for at least 24hrs. this allows the flavours to mature and become more distinctive :] yumyum!
  6. after: powder your bench with some plain flour and roll out the dough to the thickness you want. u dont want any thicker than approx 5-6mm i reckon. the dough comes out pretty thick.
  7. then bake it @ 170-180degrees till golden brown.
  8. have your stencils rdy. once the cooked dough is out, you want to cut it straight away before the dough hardens!

ENJOY!~ ^_________^
