Gingerbread Bars filled with Prune Preserve and Coated in Chocolate

Gingerbread Bars

Calling all gingerbread lovers! In this lesson, we are going to prepare traditional Czech gingerbread bars. This dessert has a well-balanced Czech gingerbread flavor that is perfectly sweet and uses delicious and healthy rye flour. The texture of this dessert is very fluffy, and the prune marmalade is not just spread in the middle of the dessert but also added into the batter. For a final touch, the chocolate coating ties everything together nicely. This dessert has some flavor similarities to decorated Christmas gingerbread cookies but offers a completely different experience. In the Czech Republic, it is known for being a casual, easy-to-prepare dessert that is served all year long.

Suitable for vegetarians.

Hop onto Zoom from the comfort of your home and learn from Czech-born Chef Tom Slepicka in these hands-on interactive classes. This series, just like the previous series, will be focused on classic and modern Czech and Slovak dishes, so anyone with Czech and Slovak heritage or anyone who is a fan of Czech and Slovak culture will not want to miss out.

Slepicka graduated from culinary school in his hometown of Brno, located in the Czech Republic. While still in school, he established a successful full-service catering company which operated in the Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, and Austria. Slepicka moved to the U.S. with his wife in 2014. From 2015-16, he operated the Czech Deli at the NewBo City Market. The goal of this course is to make tasty and high-quality meals accessible to everyone.
