About Gingerbread (The modern way) Recipe
The traditional recipe does not have baking powder in Gingerbread. Reason - Baking Powder and its variants namely sour milk, vinegar, lemon juice and cream of tartar were used for leavening,increasing the volume of and lightening cakes and were discovered after the 1840's!However the traditional Gingerbread recipe is stable since as early as 992 A.D and of course did not use any of these agents! Recently a friend of mine from London spoke with me over traditional recipes and told me that people are liking a new variant of Gingerbread apart from the old fashioned recipe and as of now both the recipes are being made in some households.This new variant is that resembling a delicious Ginger Cake and only one important ingredient added to make the batter lighter - yes you guessed it - Baking Powder!I tried out the modern recipe with baking powder and was completely taken in by the simple yet subtle deliciousness of the recipe!

How to make Gingerbread (The modern way)
My Tip:I had some stem Ginger leftover from last year and so added that.You can use Ginger candy/preserved Ginger or just dust the top with icing sugar!I also found a tin of Black Treacle and Golden Syrup at a provision store and bought both of them.For black treacle you can use jaggery syrup from the darkest Jaggery you can find.You can also use Molasses if you have it.Golden Syrup can be substituted with honey,corn syrup or maple syrup.With a cup of coffee or tea its a total winner!
