You might have been able to tell that I’m rather a fan of the old ginger zing, and probably won’t be surprised to see this makeover recipe of an old fashioned gingerbread using our ginger paleo baking mix. It’s soft and rich, and of course easy to make.
1 box of HGG Ginger Baking Mix
1/2 tsp Baking Powder or baking soda
½ tsp Mixed Spice
½ tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup of Pure Coco Coconut Nectar Syrup (or you could use maple syrup, but I haven’t tried myself)
180gm melted butter or oil
2 Eggs (lightly beaten)
160ml Milk of choice
Preheat your oven to 150C degrees. Make sure that the oven is fully preheated before you make the gingerbread as it needs to go into the oven as quickly as possible after the batter has been mixed.
Grease and line standard loaf tins with baking paper.
In a large bowl, mix the HGG ginger dry mix, baking soda, baking powder, mixed spice and nutmeg.
In a small saucepan add the coconut nectar and butter or oil. Melt over low heat until nicely combined. Add the nectar and butter/oil mix, followed by the lightly beaten eggs and milk, to the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine, then pour into your prepared loaf tin.
Cook the gingerbread for approx 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. Remove from the oven and leave to cool in the tins for 30 minutes before turning out.
Serve warm or cold. Enjoy!
