Ginger has a long history traced back to about the year 1000 in Armenia and France. Spreading to Sweden in the 13th Century then Germany in the 15th Century, you can see through these cuisine’s recipes, how Gingerbread has made it’s way into folklore and everyday baking. In Sweden during this time, they baked Gingerbread for digestive issues as well. Sounds like a tasty fix if you ask me.
Gingerbread showed up in England in the 17th Century and then over to America, where molasses was used in the recipes. In American, it was baked as cookies but also as breads.
Gingerbread Spice is now used all year long not just for baking, but also as a topping and ingredient for Lattes and other coffee-based drinks. Sprinkle some on your oatmeal, baked apples, poached pears and other ways where you can substitute it for Apple Pie Spice and Pumpkin Pie Spice.
We also have a delicious Gingerbread Coffee Cake if you are in need of a Gingerbread recipe.
