Today, I am sharing. recipe for Gingerbread Squares Mix. This recipe was always a best seller for me over the holidays when I used to sell food gifts. Packaged in a gift bag with the recipe included, it's a thoughtful gift to give to someone on your list who loves to bake.
The recipient would only need to add molasses, butter and eggs to the mix to bake up a beautiful old-fashioned Gingerbread Squares Recipe. The bags that I used in the photo above have a zippered closing and are 6 inches wide by 9 inches high.
You could also gift this mix in a beautiful jar as seen in the photo below. And check out that slice topped with sweetened whipped cream. Oh my!
I've included the recipe for the lemon sauce which is over-the-top divine drizzled over a piece of square. This dessert is best served warm from the oven and it easily heats up for a few seconds in the microwave - or you can enjoy it cold as well!
The squares stay incredibly moist. A slice sampled three days after it was baked was still as fresh tasting as the first day. They are SO good!! 🙂 If you love gingerbread flavour, you're going to want to try this recipe.
Instructions for making the mix
Well, it just doesn't get any easier than this 🙂 Place all ingredients into a large mixing bowl and stir until well-combined.
Next, divide the mixture in half. You should have 2 and ½ cups of mix for each bag/jar that you are using.
I like to slide the bag into a tall cup and wrap the top over the lip of the cup. Then, I use a large-mouth funnel like the kind you would use for making jams and spoon the mix right in. If you don't have a funnel, then you can easily scoop it in with a small measuring cup.
How to make the squares and Lemon Sauce - yum!
The two images below will show you what the printable will look like. It is designed for 8.5 by 11 inch paper. If you're using a bag for gift-giving, it can easily be folded and tucked inside. If you're using a jar, you could fold it into a small square and place it in a clean zippered bag and tuck it into the mix with the jar. Depending on the jar, you could tuck it right under the lid and it should sit there quite nicely all folded up 🙂
So, there you have it!! You could make one for yourself and gift one - this is a classic gingerbread cake with lemon sauce. Enjoy!
