🎅 HAPPY CHRISTMAS EVERYONE! 🎄 🥂   

Christmas table can’t without mince pie or gingerbread cookies, right? So, I’m going to make gingerbread this year. Wish you like it! 🙂

This gingerbread was reduced sweetness to suit young children. You can use the gluten-free flour to substitute the plain flour.

It is fun and exciting to make this cookie with your children, wish they won’t make a big mess around your kitchen. 🙂 Also, you can teach them to make a little hole on the angel’s or father Christmas’s head before baking. Tie a ribbon through the hole and hang on the Christmas tree for decoration.

The recipe was inspired by Isa Chandra Moskowitz

Vegan Molasses Gingerbread 

Ingredient: 

  • 1/3 cup Vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup Unrefined brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp Molasses
  • 1/4 cup Nut milk of your choice
  • 1 cup Wholewheat plain flour or use gluten-free flour
  • 1 cup Quinoa flour or buckwheat flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp Baking powder
  • Pinch of Pink Sea salt
  • 1 tsp Mixed spice, or 1/2 tsp each of ground nutmeg, cloves, and cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground ginger

Method: 

  1. In a large bowl whisk together oil and sugar. Add molasses and soymilk. The molasses and soymilk won’t really blend with the oil but that’s ok.
  2. Sieve all the dry ingredients in the milk mixture. When they all mix well combined until a stiff dough is formed. Wrap in cling wrap and chill for an hour or up to 3 days in advance.
  3. Preheat oven to 350°F/175°C/155°C in a fan oven. Lightly grease your cookie sheets or line with parchment paper.
  4. On a lightly floured surface roll the dough out to a little less than 1/4 inch thick. Cut out the shapes with your favourite cookie cutters and use a thin spatula to gently place on cookie sheets. If you are using them to decorate a tree or something, remember to punch a hole in their heads before baking. Bake for 8 minutes.
  5. Remove from oven and let them cool for 2 minutes on the baking sheet then move to a cooling rack. Wait until they are completely cool before icing. But I just put few white chocolate chips for a simple decorate.

What you guy want to do in the steaming hot weather? Are you still staying in the hot kitchen to cook and feed your families? Do you have to or do you love to? Tell me honestly!

Luckily, I don’t have to if I don’t want to sweat all over for cooking. 😍 :p Sometimes I just fancy a snack or a bowl of salad full of goodies, or maybe a bowl of cold noodle. What’s yours in the hot summer?

I started up my Instagram account more than a year since.  Looking up all my favourites bloggers is the most relaxing time. Also, is my normal routines now. I can catch lots of ideas for my cooking or baking.

This is one of the bloggers called: nice cream. Every time, he or she put the post on the IG, drooling is only my expression! I altered the recipe a bit and satisfy my intense cravings.

Ingredient: 

  • 1 can Full fat Coconut milk, chill overnight
  • 2 Avocados, peeled and scoop out the flesh
  • 4 to 5 tbsp Maple syrup or Agave nectar
  • 2 tsp Fresh lemon juice

Method: 

  1. Put the avocados, maple syrup and lemon juice in a high-speed blender. Blend until smooth.
  2. Use an electric whisk to beat the coconut milk until smooth, mix with the avocado mixture.
  3. Store in an airtight container, and chill in the fridge for at least 2+ hours before serve.

Note: 

  • If you have any granola on hand, you can sprinkle some on top of the ‘ice’ cream with more syrup before serving. Or other chopped nuts will do!
