Gingerbread, one of the most important cakes of winter’s and of course for Christmas. Gingerbread recipe is full of flavors of spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and dry ginger. But I add only ginger to my gingerbread. The lovely golden color of this bread is purely from molasses and is best to enjoy with a hot cup of tea or coffee. If you wish you can use your favorite icing on the Gingerbread.

Do you like winter??? I like winters for the food that we eat during this season. The spices used in the food are more than during the other seasons, this is because the spices keep us warm and help us fight with winter, and keep us healthy during this season. Are you wondering why I’m talking about the season and not about the cake? That is because this cake is filled with spices. Especially Ginger. Which helps you keep warm and helps your throat get rid of all the cold.


This gingerbread recipe is moist and less sugar, yet you get that caramel taste which is perfect for this season. I love to have my Gingerbread a little warm and with a hot cup of tea or coffee and my a cozy place at home.  Let’s quickly check out the video first and jump to the ingredients to make this golden beauty.
