  • 2 tbsp - Sugar
  • 1.5 tbsp - ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp - ground Clove
  • 1 tsp - salt
  • 1.5 tsp - baking powder
  • 1.5 cups - Brown sugar
  • 220 g - Butter
  • 2 tbsp - Corn oil
  • 1.5 cups - light Molasses

How to Make Spiced Bread Cookie Dough

  • Sieve the dry mix including all the spices together.
  • Cream butter and sugar with oil, incorporate the molasses.
  • Add the dry mix and blend slowly (add water if necessary) and refrigerate.
  • Remove from the fridge and roll the cookie dough to about 2 mm in thickness.
  • Trim to the same width (exceeding a little) as the baking tray you are cooking the spiced cake in.
  • Cut out two rectangle shapes and bake for 180 degree C for 20 minutes and cool.
  • For Italian meringue:
  • Bring 250 g of sugar and water to the boil and keep warm on the stove.
  • Whip the egg whites and pour 100 g of sugar into the mixture as you whip them.
  • When the egg whites reach a soft peak, pour the rest of your boiling syrup on top and allow to cool.
  • To assemble:
  • Trim the top of the ginger loaf cake to flatten the top.
  • Then place on the two slabs of cookie dough to make the roof.
  • Decorate with the meringue, using a pastry bag with plain nozzle. Caramelize with a blow torch and add your own festive decoration.
