The History

When it comes to confections enjoyed during the Christmas season, gingerbread is arguably the most symbolic. This spiced treat can take various different forms from house-shaped cookies to cake loaves and has been a fixture during the holidays for centuries. It was actually during the 15th century, in Medieval England, when the food received its name. Gingerbread was originally used as a reference to preserved ginger, although it eventually became the term for the desserts we know and love today. 

According to the book Making Gingerbread Houses, the very first recipe for gingerbread can be traced back to 2400 BC in Greece. Yet it was around the 11th century when Europe truly embraced gingerbread. After shipments of ginger arrived from the Middle East with the Crusaders, the personal cooks for the affluent could experiment with the spice. Then when it became more affordable for the masses, the development of gingerbread became more prevalent. 

Towards the end of the Middle Ages, gingerbread had become a staple for fairs across Europe. In England, Holland, Germany and France, hard cookies would take the shape of everything from animals to royal figures. For that extra decadent flourish, these decorative gingerbread designs would sometimes be finished with gold leaf. Others would typically feature white icing. The elaborate nature of these gingerbread constructions became synonymous with the well-heeled side of England. And while the popularity of the gingerbread itself didnt travel over to America, the design work did. Many seaside homes in America from the colonial era boast white, carved architectural details, and these can be known as gingerbread work. 

During the 16th century, the recipe for gingerbread was tweaked. It swapped out breadcrumbs for flour, and the recipe also began to include sweeteners and eggs. All of this helped gingerbread become a tastier, lighter product. It was during this time when the now iconic gingerbread man was first baked. However, the person behind its creation wasnt a master chef or aspiring confectioner. It was Queen Elizabeth I. She apparently instructed her chef to bake gingerbread cookies which resembled the likenesses of visiting dignitaries. 

As for gingerbread houses, these also originated in the 16th century. The life of the gingerbread house began in Germany, and their fanciful designs helped them to quickly become a Christmas tradition. What is unclear, however, is if the gingerbread was first created in a kitchen, or in a classic fairy tale. Yet theres no denying the story of Hansel and Gretel, which sees two children coming across a cottage constructed with gingerbread and other sweet treats, helped to popularise the gingerbread house across the world. 

Recipe Idea

Gingerbread Hot Chocolate 

While its the perfect drink on Christmas morning, this rich and elegantly spiced gingerbread hot chocolate can be enjoyed whenever you need a hug in a mug. If you need another selling point, the hot chocolate is topped with a decadent caramel whipped cream and dusting of nutmeg. Plus with the use of sugar free Monin syrups, feel free to substitute other ingredients with healthier options for a more guilt-free beverage.  

What you will need: 

  • Milk (500ml)
  • Cinnamon stick
  • Vanilla pod
  • Plain chocolate (100g)
  • Monin Sugar Free Gingerbread Syrup (100ml)
  • Fresh cream (120ml)
  • Whipped cream dispenser
  • Whipped cream chargers
  • Monin Sugar Free Caramel Syrup (30ml)
  • Freshly grated nutmeg

- In a saucepan, place the milk, cinnamon stick and vanilla pod. The vanilla pod should be split and have the seeds scraped out. Put the pan on a medium heat and leave until the milk is boiling.

- Remove from the heat and add the Monin Sugar Free Gingerbread Syrup and plain chocolate, constantly stirring until the chocolate is fully melted. Now energetically whisk up the hot chocolate until it becomes frothy on top. 

- Grab a whipped cream dispenser and pour in both the fresh cream and Monin Sugar Free Caramel Syrup. Attach a cream charger and then give the dispenser a vigorous shake, doing so for a few seconds to guarantee a fluffy whipped cream. 

- Pour the hot chocolate into two suitable mugs. Top with a hearty amount of the caramel whipped cream and finish with a dusting of freshly grated nutmeg.
