    This gingerbread is well-flavoured and incredibly moist. For a loaf with soft crusts, bake in the evening and allow the loaf to cool in the oven overnight. Enjoy for afternoon tea or elevenses.

    It's great fun to make these soft and chewy gingerbread men. Decorating them will keep the kids occupied for hours! Remember to make enough to give as gifts to your neighbours.

    Delicious gingerbread men. Easy to make and taste great! Children can help, too. Find a selection of anything you like to decorate the gingerbread men with. Writing icing helps stick the sweets and bits down.

    I am 'the one who can't cook' in my family, but I found this recipe in my mum's old food tech book, and it's brilliant (and fail-safe if it works for me). It's light and fluffy but really rich and warming at the same time (probably something to do with the spices). It's really good as an 'alternative' birthday cake, a cold-winter-evening-with-a-mug-of-hot-chocolate-and-a-good-book cake, or a cup-of-tea-and-a-chat cake. Enjoy...

    A lovely combination of two favourite cakes. This apple gingerbread cake is perfectly spiced and very moist. You can use regular milk if you don't have buttermilk to hand, or use 150ml regular milk with a tablespoon of vinegar or lemon juice, and allow it to sit for 5 minutes before using.

    Great biscuits for a children's party. They can decorate them any way they like.

    This is a recipe that I have been working on for some time as I wanted to create my own gingerbread with the zing of ginger coming through and that moist texture which is so traditional. So here it is.
