Making your own gingerbread to take with you during training is easier than you think. You can get started on this recipe from sports nutritionist Stephanie Scheirlynck straight away.
Preparation: 10 minutes - baking: 45 minutes
Nutritional value per person (1 slice):
Ingredients for 12 servings:
Preheat the oven to 160 °C.
Sieve the flour and baking powder and mix in the salt.
In another bowl, mix the milk, eggs, maple syrup, sugar and spices using a whisk. Pour this wet mixture into the first bowl a little at a time and stir well until you have whisked out all the lumps (you can also do this with a mixer).
Pour the batter into a baking tin lined with baking paper and decorate with the nuts.
Bake the gingerbread in the oven for 40 to 45 minutes.
Plunge in a toothpick to see if the gingerbread is done: if there is no batter clinging to it, the cake is ready!
Set aside to cool and cut into slices.
JYou can also use a speculaas mix instead of individual spices.
