Hi my name is Brandon Sarkis on behalf of Expert Village. Today I am going to show you
how to make Gingerbread. Alright so the first thing you want to do it put our whisk on the
bowl. And the first thing we are going to add in here is our, we are going to add half
of our flour. And it doesn't really have to be half you can start with about two cups
of flour. But we don't want to do it all at once. So let's just dump that in, which is
easier said than done apparently. There's that. I have already started making my floury
mess for the day. So what we are going to do, you want to raise the mixer up or raise
the bowl up and I always take and put a towel over it when I start it because it is less
likely to throw flour all over the place. And just put it on the first setting, the
lowest setting which is usually stir or something along those lines. Now that it is on, we are
going to add in the salt, the ginger, cinnamon as well as our sugar. So what's going to happen
here is that we are going to get everything all mixed together before we proceed any further.
So you let this go for, I don't know, I'd let it go for another minute or two just make
sure it is all nicely mixed up. And you want to take your spatula at some point and scrap
all the way to the bottom, make sure that you got everything in the bottom so we come
back in a about a minute or two.
