Fragrant, moist, and simple to put together, this homemade gingerbread recipe truly encapsulates the feelings that Christmas evokes. Get on your slippers and comfy PJ’s, put a log on the fire, turn on the Christmas music, and enjoy a slice of gingerbread piled high with whipped cream and a dash of cinnamon.
Gingerbread is worth making for the smell alone. When I was making this video, my kids came in and said “What smells like Christmas mom?!” Gingerbread is better than any potpourri or essential oil, because you get to eat what you smell!
After testing many gingerbread recipes I ended us basing my recipe mainly off of Cook’s Illustrated gingerbread recipe. Many recipes call for hot water or hot tea, however I found that the milk gave it a nice crumb, while staying moist. The addition of minced crystallized ginger act like flecks of gold in a miner’s pan in this gingerbread recipe and make it truly special.
