GINGER bread from Dijon

Today, i have been baking. French Ginger Bread from Dijon and brownies!

Pain d'épices de Dijon:

200gr liquid honey
250gr flour with incorporated baking powder
1 teaspoon ginger bread spices
Sweet orange peels
50gr sugar
1/2 a glass of milk

Mix honey with warm milk
Mix flour with incorporated baking powder, spices, sugar and dried fruits
Add  honey and milk to the flour, spices , sugar and orange peels
pour into a cake tin and bake for about 45mn, in a preheated oven at 170°C.
The first day the loaf is dry, but gets softer afterwards.
And now, i can smell apples and cinamon...i'm making a "Compote de pommes"
I wish you can smell the apples ,ginger bread and the chocolate of the brownies...It smells ...SO   GOOD! see you tomorow!

The ginger bread and brownies look divine and would go down really well with the cup of tea I have beside me while I am on my PC!! I have been shopping and was tempted to buy a chocolate eclair with my afternoon cuppa. I couldn't be trusted to do any home baking as the smell of it cooking would tempt me to eat it straight away and probably too much too. You have a very lucky family.

Enjoy it, Jackie, Surrey UK

These look delicious! Have a wonderful day and try not to eat too much ;) Take care my friend.
