Gingered Bread

On Wednesday 28th November, as part of our Tudor Day, the children in Shakespeare, Tolkien and Horowitz classes made a traditional Tudor dessert; Gingered bread.

In small groups the children followed the instructions in the recipe to make their gingered bread.  This involved crumbling bread, mixing in honey, butter, ginger and ground pepper and then pressing the mixture into trays.  After a few hours in the fridge the children were able to try their gingered bread.  The tasting had mixed results!

"The gingered bread was fun to make but tasted unusual!" AT, Year 6

"The gingered bread was fun to make, but it was disgusting when we tasted it!" JP, Year 6.


  1. I think this is one of those times where you describe the taste as "interesting"...may not have helped that it was not freshly made when I tasted it. Still living history is a great way to understand it. Well done years 5 and 6.

  2. I tried some gingered bread and, yes, it did have a unique taste. It also doubles up as a very good doorstop!
