Honey Gingerbread is a simple and easy to prepare honey cake. It may be decorated if desired.

Ingredients[edit]

You may need some molds to shape the cakes.

Decoration (optional)[edit]

Procedure[edit]

  1. Combine all ingredients in a bowl except one egg and mix until a smooth dough is obtained.
  2. Put the last egg in a cup or small bowl and mix it.
  3. Divide the dough into five or six portions. Take one portion and roll it flat, about 3mm thick. Molds are useful for shaping - cut some nice forms and put them on a baking tin.
  4. When the tin is full, take the mixed egg and glaze top of every cake.
  5. Bake at 180°C for a few minutes, until the cakes have a light brown colour.
  6. Repeat with other dough portions.

Decorating (optional)[edit]

If you wish to decorate the cakes you will need additional time - perhaps hours if the decoration is complex.

  1. Mix the egg white and sugar. You may need to add more sugar if the mixture is not firm enough.
  2. If you do not have accessories needed to "paint" on cakes you can use a plastic bag - just cut off a corner of the bag to make a small hole, about 1mm in diameter. Put the icing mixture in the bag, seal or roll closed the top opening, and squeeze the icing out of the small hole.
  3. "Paint" or ice the cakes.
