  • 90 grams brown sugar
  • 125 grams butter
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 125ml golden syrup
  • 1 tsp sodium bicarbonate
  • 1 tsp mixed spice

How to make Gingerbread men

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Also grease 2 baking trays with melted butter.
  2. Put the butter and sugar in a bowl and beat it using an electric mixer until it becomes pale and creamy.
  3. Then put in the egg yolk and golden syrup, beat them till they are combined well together. Then stir in the ginger, flour, mixed spice and sodium bicarbonate.
  4. Meanwhile, put the egg white in a small bowl. With the help of an electric beater, beat until soft peaks form. Gradually add in the icing sugar and beat again till stiff peaks form. Cover this bowl with a plastic wrap and keep it aside.
  5. Take the dough and place it between 2 sheets of baking paper, then roll it out until its about 4mm thick.
  6. Use a 9 cm gingerbread man cutter and cut out shapes. Place them on the greased baking trays with a distance of 3cm each. Repeat this process with the leftover dough.
  7. Bake them for 10 minutes or until they turn brown in colour. Then transfer to a wired rack to cool.
  8. Take a bowl, add the egg whites and vanilla and beat until it is frothy. Add the sugar gradually and continue whisking till the mixture is shiny. Continue whisking till stiff peaks form (This should take 5-7 minutes).
  9. Place the royal icing in small plastic bags. Cut a small hole in a corner of each bag. Pipe this icing over the gingerbread men to decorate and finish with smarties.
  10. Serve warm for best taste.
