Bake #8: Grasmere Gingerbread – The Great British Bake Off Cookbook Challenge

Bake the 8th of the Great British Bake Off Cookbook Challenge.

These were really rather good, a cross between a flapjack and shortbread, crunchy and chewy.   My instincts told me to add more ginger when making them but I stuck to the recipe.     Next time I will go with what I think and will put that extra ginger in.

Definitely one to repeat.

  1. You need to try this:

    It’s a classic NZ recipe, sooooo good. Although your gingerbread might be a good base for the Edmonds gingery topping. Hmm.

  2. Looks interesting – I think I may have eaten something like this before actually and remember it was absolutely delicious.

  3. Is this the stuff that comes wrapped in wax paper with the blue and white pattern on it? I am CRAZY about this stuff. Never occurred to me to seek out a recipe for it.
