Jumping back in time + Liebster award 

The lovely Hannah from  emptychairsatemptytables nominated me to go back in time and share my first blog post with you! 

I love this tag which fattymccupcakes created! I think it is quiet fun to see how people started their blogs. So I can’t wait to read your first blog posts!!! 

My first blog post:

30. November 2015

It’s that time of the year when people start baking and Christmas is coming. I never baked gingerbread men before and I wanted to try them this year. It’s time to try new stuff and enjoy every day with something little sweet. I think you should try them as well because they turned out really good.

What you will need:

  • 350g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda can I add here that I had no idea what’s the difference between powder and soda… it’s baking powder here 
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 175g brown sugar
  • 4 tbsp sirup
  • 1 egg
  • butter

Mix everything together in a bowl. Melt the butter and add bit by bit to the mixture until it looks like that:

Prepare a plain with flour and knead the dough. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

Put the cookies on to a baking sheet.

Bake the gingerbread men for 9-10 minutes.

Let them cool down. Take some icing sugar, add water and mix until it gets a smooth consistency. Then split the mixture into separate bowls and add food colour.

Put the icing in piping bags and decorate the gingerbread men.
