Greasy gingerbread dough

(2 Posts)

Sorry only just seen this. Hope you managed ok. Last time I made gingerbread the dough was very greasy but was fine when cooked. It made a lovely soft and chewy gingerbread rather than a crisp break your teeth type. Think I need to go make some more.

help! tomorrow it's the Christmas buffet in work and I said I'd bake something. I choose gingerbread as it's festive and I've made it in the past and been pleased. Recipe is from the GBBO 'how to turn everyday bakes into showstoppers' book.

Tonight I made my batch and the only thing I can think of is that I didn't have the full amount of unsalted butter, and probably made up half the required weight w/Anchor spreadable...

I left the dough to cool in the kitchen while I tidyed up, and when I tried to roll it out it was horribly greasy. I've since had it in the fridge but when I tried again it was still the same.

Basically is this salvageable at all, can I Chuck a ton of flour in it to soak up the greasiness or should I just bin it? blah
