Baking the Tastiest Fox Gingerbreads

I love gingerbread smells and cinnamon in the kitchen, so even if nobody wants gingerbreads, I will make them anyway because the smell in the house is just amazing and festive! Anyone else the same? I just love the warm baking smell, mmm.

This amazingly tasty post is also a collab with the IN-CRED-IBLE everythingmexx, I am honestly so excited whenever an everything me post comes in my reader! So go show lots of festive bear love over there! And I hope you enjoy both of our (different) but foody posts. 🙂

And here’s how to make these little fox and star gingerbreads.

Processed with VSCO with m5 preset


  • 350g/12oz plain flour, plus extra for rolling out
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 125g/4½oz butter
  • 175g/6oz light soft brown sugar
  • 1 free-range egg
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup (mmmm)

How to make them:

  1. Sift together the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon and add to a mixing bowl to combine. Add the butter and mix until the mixture looks like breadcrumbs. Stir in the sugar.

  2. Lightly beat the egg and golden syrup together, add to gingrebread mix and stir until the mixture clumps together. Tip the dough out, knead briefly until smooth, wrap in clingfim and leave to chill in the fridge for 15 minutes.

  3. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4. Line two baking trays with greaseproof paper.

  4. Roll the dough out to a 0.5cm/¼in thickness on a lightly floured surface. Using cutters, cut out the gingerbread men shapes (or foxes like mine, you can get the fox cutter from White Stuff!)  and place on the baking tray, leaving a gap between them.

  5. Bake for 12-15 minutes, or until lightly golden-brown. Leave on the tray for 10 minutes and then move to a wire rack to finish cooling.

Eat these warm for the best EVER taste.
