Hi folks! I just wondered if anyone on here had a foolproof recipe for gluten free gingerbread? I made some last year using a normal wheat-flour recipe but switching it out for gluten free flour but while really tasty, they were a bit too soft and lacked the crunch of the real thing. So if anyone has a gluten free recipe they swear by, I would love to hear it if you're happy to share! Thanks in advance! :-)
Pre-heat oven to 190C, Gas 5. Lightly grease a baking sheet
Sift the flour into a large bowl. Add the ginger and the bicarb. Run the butter into the flour mixture till it resembles bread crumbs. Add the sugars, egg and honey and blend to make a soft dough. If the dough appears too wet, add a little more flour. If it seems too dry, add a few drops of water or a little more egg.
Knead the dough until smooth on a lightly floured surface. Roll it out as evenly as possible to a thickness of 5mm.
Cut out shapes and carefully place on a baking sheet. (You could at this point decorate with cherries or raisins if you want.)
Bake for about 12 minutes until just lightly brown (Mine only needed 10 minutes, but I think my oven gets very hot.) Leave to cool for a few minutes before lifting on to a rack to cool fully. Then decorate with icing. Can also be frozen.
