Gran’s Ginger Bread

Of all Rom’s recipes, this is the one that I was most “deflated” to learn was from the Manawatu Evening Standard. I imagined, not unreasonably, that “Gran’s Ginger Bread” would be just that. Handed down across the generations from time immemorial. But no, my illusions were shattered when, at the tender age of 45, I first laid eyes on the recipe.

Ginger Gems

To this day I have no idea how these bite sized loaves of ginger wonderfulness keep in the cupboard. Rom had to fight us back just to allow them to cool from the oven. Personally I think they are at their best steaming and hot from the oven with a dob of butter, or raspberry jam, or icecream melting over the moist interior.
