In honor of the holiday season, I’ve found a gingerbread recipe made with
Making gingerbread houses is a holiday tradition in many families, though some eat the decorations instead of putting them on the house! While this recipe isn’t the kind of flat gingerbread you’d use to make houses, I found this 1953 holiday ad showing busy elves and their gingerbread house.
1 pkg. (14 oz.) gingerbread mix
1 tablespoon instant coffee
1 tablespoon grated orange peel
1/4 cup orange juice (Minute Maid, of course!)
Combine all ingredients. Beat vigorously with spoon until very well blended, about 1 1/2 minutes. Pour into 8x8x2-inch greased and flour pan.
Bake in moderate oven, 350°F, 30 to 35 minutes or until center springs back when lightly touched.
Cool 10 minutes; remove from pan and set on rack. Serve as a hot bread or as a dessert with whipped topping.
Makes 6 servings (about 2x4 inches).
I’ll admit that I was amused that this recipe begins with a gingerbread mix! By adding the other ingredients, though, you’ll give the bread a homemade flavor, and save time in the process!
