Baking fan? Why not try making a Gingerbread BMW - we’d love to see your creations!
To make our easy gingerbread recipe, combine white and brown sugar with vanilla, honey, butter and water in a pot and heat while stirring until the butter and the sugar have melted then set aside to cool. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg. Add flour, cocoa powder, lemon zest and spices to it and then mix thoroughly.
Remove the slightly cooled honey-butter mixture from the pot and add it to the batter in the bowl. Use your hands to knead the dough for ~5 minutes until it becomes smooth. Wrap the dough in plastic wrap, removing as much air as possible and place it in the refrigerator for ~4 hours. This will enable the right consistency for shaping it into a car.
Print out the car template you want to use, cut out each piece and then glue them to a piece of cardboard. You can use this BMW 6 Series (E24) template, click here to download.
Take the dough out of the fridge and let it soften up at room temperature for ~30 minutes. Divide into several sections and place on a floured work surface. Roll each section out to about one-quarter of an inch thick. Lay the templates on top of the dough and carefully cut each one out. Gently lay the dough pieces on a baking sheet.
Let the dough rest on the baking sheets for another 15 minutes so they will not loose shape whilst baking. Heat the oven to 350 degrees and bake for 16 to 18 minutes then let the pieces cool completely.
Whilst cooling, create the glaze which will hold the pieces together - separate eggs and beat egg whites until stiff, gradually sift powdered sugar into the egg whites causing it to thicken. Add to the edges of the gingerbread peices and hold together until it can support itsself.
