I have fond memories of my childhood of food shopping every Saturday morning with my mum and my sister; my mum would food shop whilst my sister and I would take up temporary residence at the rack of glossies and do as much sneaky flicking-through as possible. At the end of our trip, we were allowed to pick one item from the bakery section, my sister ALWAYS opted for gingerbread which I never really understood, who picks gingerbread when there's an assortment of very tasty looking cakes just waiting to be devoured. Weird. Anyway, last week, having still not made use of the brand new biscuit cutter I had recently bought, I thought it'd be a great excuse to put it to some good use and have a whack at baking some gingerbread. I followed this recipe here but unfortunately I was feeling a leeeeettle too confident in my baking skills and felt it okay to adjust the recipe to my liking. Bad decision. I ended up adding waaaay too much baking powder, which I assume, is responsible for the unappealing finished cracked look, and they rose a little more than they should have. Note for my next attempt: follow the recipe exactly.
They still tasted quite good though and that's the important thing, right?
