200g butter

¾ cup dark brown sugar

3 cups flour

1 large egg

½ cup molasses

2-4 tsp vanilla

Ginger, nutmeg, and cinnamon to taste


  1. Add 200g butter at room temperature and ¾ cup dark brown sugar to a large bowl. Beat the mixture until the butter turns light and fluffy. A stand mixer is great for this, but a handheld works perfectly well.
  2. In the same bowl, combine 3 cups flour, 1 large egg, ½ cup molasses, and 2-4 tsp vanilla with the butter mixture. Add ginger and cinnamon to taste. Knead the mixture until just combined. If preferred, you can substitute nutmeg for ginger.
  3. Bake at 150°C for 15 minutes and leave to cool on a flat surface. Your gingerbread will now hold strong even though your construction is out of this world.
