My Gingerbread

Last few days before Christmas, it feels like a bakering marathon!!

I made the famous bredeles (the Alsatian Christmas cookies), brioches, muffins and now I fill a gap, even a void, here is finally my gingerbread!!

It’s has been a few years since I wanted to make gingerbread. Each time something was missing: the right recipe, a specific ingredient…

This time, I was super ready!! I had found Chef Christophe Felder’s recipe (thank you the amazing cookbook “Pâtisserie!”), I went grocery shopping!! With a written shopping list so that I wouldn’t miss a thing…

Do you see it coming? The failure? Aww yes! I forgot the orange marmelade!! So I will introduce the almost Christophe Felder’s gingerbread recipe.

I took what I had in my kitchen: yellow plum jam, but Alsatian yellow plums, so that remains okay!!! 😉 I also added pearl sugar and I used a pound cake mold, whereas the Chef suggests gingerbread shaped as muffins.

Anyway… I just can’t help it!! But guess what? It’s was good, even really good!!! Amazingly soft and moist!! I could find the gingerbread taste from my chilhood memories… which a slight touch of yellow plum!! 😉

Add butter and it will be heavenly!!

The utensils:

My Affinity sauce pan by De Buyer

A mixing bowl, a spatula and a good whisk

A pound cake mold or muffin molds.

Shall we now? Let’s do this!

The recipe, Chef!
