Bubbles in baked gingerbread pieces.

by Becky

I used a silicon mold for my very first attempt at gingerbread. Everything went well until I took it out of the oven and 3 pieces were bubbled up so that the outside of the pieces looked like the house had been bombed! What caused the gingerbread to bubble up during bak8ng? Thanks. I checked the questions but did not see where this one had been answered.
Thank you

Not greased thoroughly?

What a shame! It really does look kind of bombed out!

When you removed the gingerbread from the mold, did any dough/gingerbread remain in the mold? It looks kind of like it stuck in those spots rather than bubbling, but I'm sure you can see if that was the problem.

I know you can eliminate bubbles from molded chocolate by tapping the mold a bit on the counter, after pouring. Not sure if that would work with gingerbread though.

If you plan to try it again, I would make extra sure the silicone pan is clean and very dry, then thoroughly (probably with Crisco rather than just a spray), and then try to tapping trick after you pour the gingerbread into the mold. You may even want to thin out your gingerbread dough a bit it it's not a good consistency for pouring.

Hopefully, the professional bakers in our group can offer some other ideas!
