This recipe was created as part of a Gingerbread Project. We tasted Tudor, Georgian and Modern gingerbreads. We thought about how the gingerbread had changed over time as treacle and then sugar were used. We liked the Tudor one the least and decided to change the recipe to make it tastier and healthier. We decided what ingredients to add to the honey and bread mix.

This recipe includes chopped, dried strawberries, cherries and apricots. We tested many spices and chose cinnamon and ginger to flavour the balls.

  • 110g (100ml) Honey
  • 110g (4½oz) Bread made into crumbs
  • ¼ 5ml spoon (teaspoon) Ginger and Cinnamon
  • 1 5ml spoon (teaspoon) Dried Apricot
  • 2 5ml spoons (teaspoons) Dried Strawberries and Cherries
  • Wooden Spoon
  • Spatula
  • Mixing Bowl
  • Measuring Jug
  • Weighing Scales
  • Baking Paper
