Mama’s Gingerbread

Jump to recipe

This is one of my favorite recipes for the seasons. Mama’s gingerbread is actually my mother in law mom’s recipe. I have been married for 11 wonderful years and I don’t know how but just last year I put a piece of this gingerbread in my mouth! I was so hooked that I didn’t ask for the recipe I just snapped a picture of it to make sure I didn’t lose it. I have made it three times in the last week. Is that good!

I think the flavor of this gingerbread reminds of the marranitos (pan dulce little pigs) they used to make at the bakery by my mom’s house in Monterrey. There’s just something about this gingerbread that makes me feel so cozy inside.

Hello, my name is Marisol Chancellor. I was born and raised in Monterrey Mexico. I’ve been living in Texas for 12 years and even when I love barbeque, fruit cobblers and sweet tea, there’s something that has the power of transporting me right back to my mom’s kitchen and gives me a little piece of home, cooking. I grew up in the kitchen and for me, memories are always linked to food, and behind the food, well, there’s always a story that comes along. So, please let me share with you my love for cooking and while we are at it, let’s share some memories, because let’s be honest, we are also hungry for nostalgia.
