Gingerbread House Cookies 2017

A few years ago my Postage Stamp Gingerbread House cookies were a hit.

The idea came from this US Postage Stamp.

Using the same templates that I made from the postage stamp above, I created this years Gingerbread House Cookies in the video.  And of course I used my Best Gingerbread Cookie Recipe

Gingerbread Cake with Fresh Ginger (Clean Eating…without top

So I think I found the best gingerbread cake recipe…ever.  I was able to conform the recipe to a clean eating standard and if you replace the eggs with an egg replacer such as Ener g or aquafaba, it can be made vegan.  What I really love about this recipe is that it uses fresh ginger in addition to the powdered ginger.

The fresh ginger adds so much flavor to it.

Ingredients:

260 grams Whole Wheat Pastry flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
10 grams finely shredded fresh ginger
1/2 cup Earth Balance Vegan Buttery sticks or 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
100 grams Coconut Sugar
1 teaspoon good quality Stevia (or you can use 50 grams of raw sugar)
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup unsulphured molasses (To prevent the molasses from sticking to the measuring cup, first spray the cup with a non stick vegetable spray.)
1 cup almond milk (any milk will work)

 

Once cooled, you can eat this just the way they are and keep it clean eating or add a topping.  I used a coconut cream topping.  To make the topping beat together

1 can of coconut cream
2 tablespoons honey (you can use maple syrup or brown rice syrup to make it vegan)
1 tsp vanilla extract.

Refrigerate topping to firm up before using.
