Easy Ginger Bread recipe

Updated on January 14, 2015

Hello there!! :)

My mantra of cooking has always been "easy to make and healthy to eat". This is a very easy ginger bread recipe which does not need too many ingredients and is prepared in no time, without much effort.

You'll need...

  • 2 cups All purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • 6-7 Tablespoons Oil, (I have used olive oil)
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 Tablespoon Ginger powder, (Dried)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Vanilla essence

How to go about it...

  1. First of all sieve the all purpose flour,baking powder and ginger powder and keep it aside.Sieving them together would be a good idea, as then the mixture would be uniform.
  2. Add oil to this mixture and mix it slowly, you will see that the mixture will soon have bread crumbles like texture.
  3. Beat the egg separately and add it to the mixture.Mix the contents well and you can add the vanilla essence.
  4. Knead the mixture till it becomes soft and smooth.At this point if it appears to be very dry then you can add a tablespoon of milk or water.If its hard then you might like to knead it a little longer. It hardly takes a minute or 2 of kneading but you can still use your food processor.I used my hands. :)
  5. Now put the dough in the refrigerator wrapped in a thin cling wrap, for about 30 mins.This step is not be missed.
  6. Take out the dough and roll it out with a roller pin.The thickness can be kept at 5mm. In my case I used my small cookie cutter to get different shapes.You can also try new designs, some of what I have tried I have posted in the pics.
  7. Put the shapes in a baking tray and keep it for baking for about 8-10 mins in a pre-heated oven at a temperature of 180 degrees..
  8. There you are!!! The ginger bread is ready to serve. It can be stored for atleast 1-2 weeks without refrigeration. Enjoy your easy ginger bread. :)

Useful tips:

  • You can use any oil of your choice, I've used olive oil.
  • If you're using butter then you will have to melt it and you will need 6-7 tablespoons (same as oil used in the recipe).
  • It is important to refrigerate the dough as this would absorb the extra moisture from the dough and also would help in cutting out shapes easily.
  • When baking shapes of different sizes then do take care that the smaller ones gets baked easily.
  • Do not over bake as this might make the ginger bread harder.
