This recipe produces gingerbread, not gingerbread cookies. Gingerbread is a type of spice cake. Parkin, a variation listed at the bottom, is partially oat-based.

IngredientsEdit

ProcedureEdit

  1. Put the butter, sugar, and syrup in a pan. Heat gently until the butter melts.
  2. Place the dry ingredients in a bowl. Pour the melted butter mixture into the bowl, and beat thoroughly.
  3. Warm the milk in a pan (so it will dissolve the syrup).
  4. Add the milk to the bowl, and beat thoroughly.
  5. Beat the eggs, and then stir them in to the mixture.
  6. Pour the mixture into an 8-inch (20cm) greased square cake tin.
  7. Cook at 170°C (325°F) for one hour.
  8. Cool in the tin for 15 minutes, then remove.

Leave at least 1 day before cutting into squares.

Notes, tips, and variationsEdit

  • Variant: Parkin
    • Instead of 8 oz (220g) (flour, use 4 oz flour (110g) and 4 oz (110g) medium oatmeal (likely meaning coarse oat flour, not rolled oats).
    • Parkin is traditionally eaten in England around Bonfire Night.
