Sweet Laurel Bakery


There’s nothing more festive than gingerbread cookies, gingerbread house decorating, and gingerbread lattes to get you in the holiday spirit. Well now, you can go ahead and add this recipe to your list! These gingerbread brownies are the perfect mix of ginger flavor with a fluffy cake like texture. You can spice it up with some holiday decor too! We used a paper cut out snowflake as a stencil and coconut “powdered sugar” for the winter wonderland feel. Enjoy!
