Let’s Make a Gingerbread Man! 

Have you seen our video where Emma makes some gingerbread men? You can watch the video here and follow Emma’s recipe below. Remember to be careful near the hot parts of the kitchen and have fun!

To hear how the Gingerbread Man jumped out of the oven and ran away, tap on the button below and download the Story Mouse app from the App Store.

Here’s what you do: 

Put the sugar, the syrup, the butter, the orange peel, the cinnamon and the ginger into a pan. Over a moderate heat, allow everything to melt and mix thoroughly.

Leave the mixture to cool and add the bicarbonate of soda, the egg, the flour and mix to a doughy consistency.  If the mixture seems too sticky, just add a little more flour.  

Roll out the dough until it’s quite thin and cut out your gingerbread men.

Place the gingerbread men on some greaseproof paper on a baking tray. Then, put them into a pre-heated oven at 200 degrees centigrade for about 15 - 20 minutes or until they are golden brown.

And finally:

Take the gingerbread men out of the oven and put them on a wire cooling tray. When they’ve cooled completely, decorate your gingerbread men with icing, sprinkles and chocolate chips. Any design is good, so you can be as creative as you like!

Have fun!


Here’s what you need:

150g Caster Sugar

1 tsp. Cinnamon

Now you can make your very own Gingerbread Man!

Watch Emma’s video and get cooking in the kitchen.
