Ginger is something I have tried to understand over the last few years.  My husband has rheumatoid arthritis and takes medication for it that makes him nauseous.  I researched ways to help him deal with the nausea and the answer, hands down, was ginger.  So we’ve tried ginger in hot water and shop bought ginger biscuits.  Today I get to make him Mrs Beeton’s ginger biscuits.  Let’s see if they help!

What you will need:-

  • 454g / 16 oz plain flour
  • 227g / 8oz butter
  • 227g / 8oz castor sugar
  • 22g ground ginger
  • 2 eggs


Rub the flour and ginger together with the flour.  Once the ingredients are incorporated mix in the sugar.

Make a well in the centre of the mixture and add the eggs.  Stir the mixture to make a paste, add a little milk if needed.

Roll out on a floured surface into a thin sheet.  Cut biscuits using a cutter.  Put onto a baking tray and cook for 20 minutes at 170.  Or until browned.

I am not a big fan of ginger biscuits but these were delicious.  Very gingery!  It’s quite a nice hot taste.

So all the biscuits for the week are baked.

And Mrs Beeton is redeemed after her madeira disaster.  The biscuits are good!  (Although I will say that the recipe specifies sugar in the ingredients but then doesn’t deal with what to do with the sugar in the method.  So I improvised!).
