Here is another great recipe from the Russian “Book of tasty and healthy food” – gingerbread with honey.
This recipe is for a pan approx. 13 x 8 inches
Stir an egg with sugar and grind in a bowl, add honey, cinnamon and clove powder, baking powder. Stir well, add flour and knead for 5-10 minutes. To make the dough turn dark, it is necessary to add burnt sugar (roast some sugar in a small pan, add
1 1/2-2 tablespoons of water, boil and then add to the dough).
Put the dough onto a baking sheet or in the form, oiled and floured, flatten, sprinkle with almonds or walnuts and place in the oven preheated to 350F (180C) for 15-20 minutes. Cut the gingerbread along the middle, fill with jam, and covered with glaze atop (optional). Before serving, cut in small rectangles, like brownies. Enjoy!
