This recipe of gingerbread with honey of chestnut I would like from a girlfriend with whom we were eating dinner. And guess what we were talking about while we were at the table… ? Ben of the food ! Normal what ! When one is at the table, we always speak of our good recipes or at the next meal. We said then that they really liked the gingerbread, but the gingerbread. So what could be better than doing it yourself ? At least, one is sure what’s in it and it improves it according to his tastes. I’ve tested it several times before finding my right balance and, for example, have I added the zest of oranges because I like the little taste that it brings.

In any case, I’ve never tested the gingerbread house, it is it is fast and super easy. It is not necessary to deny it…

I admit that I love this gingerbread with honey of chestnut because it is simple, it doesn’t take a thousand ingredients and it is fat-free. If you don’t have all the spices at home, you can, of course, use a mix of 4 spices of the trade…

Thank You Noémie !
