    • Gingerbread

      The smell of freshly baked gingerbread is hard to resist but if you can avoid the temptation of cutting a slice while warm from the oven, gingerbread is best cooled and wrapped and kept for a day or two before eating. It will slice much better and have a lovely sticky texture. Cinnamon, ginger, golden syrup and black treacle all help to give these easy gingerbreads their delicious flavour. This recipe makes two small loaves, so why not keep one in the freezer for another day? If you freeze it wrapped in individual slices, itís perfect for lunchboxes and will defrost much quicker than a whole loaf.
