Gingerbread (again)

See that up there? It’s the most unassuming delicious thing going right now. It’s the first thing I think about when I get to the bakery in the morning and although I’m trying to cut back on the sugar I’ve been nibbling on stray pieces like nobody’s business. It’s called Anna’s Hard Gingerbread and the recipe comes from Allison’s partner Kelly’s mother Anna who lives up downeast on Little Cranberry Island. Strangely enough it has no ginger in it, just a variety of warm spices and ingredients that give it a perfect flavor and texture.

I think we can say we’re all in love with gingerbreads right now at the bakery, there are at least 4 different versions going on at any given time. I can’t think of a better way to celebrate the season.

    I think we’re going to keep that recipe under wraps for now – got to have something special for the next Baker’s Notes :)
