A village in Cumbria, Grasmere is probably best known as the home of the Romantic poet, William Wordsworth, but it is also renowned for its wonderful gingerbread. Although the official recipe is a close kept secret exclusive to the region, we can still make our own slight variations. Grasmere Gingerbread is little drier and more crumbly than most, and its appearance reminds me of a sandy beach.
