Homemade Gingerbread

The festive season smells of Gingerbread! Rejoyce your family and friends with homemade sweets during the holidays.

The recipe below is a dough base that you can diversify with various additions to your taste. We offer you four options, but everything depends only on your imagination.


wholemeal flour – 1,5 glass

wheat bran particles – 0,5 glass

water – 1 glass

2-3 eggs

baking soda – 0,5 tsp

vinegar – 1 tsp

brown sugar – 4-5 tsp

salt – 0,3 tsp

olive oil – 3-4 tsp


    1. Beat eggs, add flour, bran and water, mix everything. The number of ingredients is approximate, you can add more or less, the main thing is to keep the proportions. It is necessary to achieve a creamy state of the dough, it should be like thick sour cream.
    2. Add baking soda and slake it in vinegar/ pour olive oil in. Add brown sugar, salt and mix everything.
    3. The dough base is ready. After that you can mix in flavours (find them below).
