What you will need:-


  • 2 oz butter or margarine
  • 2 level tablespoons of golden syrup
  • 2 oz self-raising flour
  • 2 oz caster sugar
  • 1 level teaspoon ground ginger.

Put the butter or margarine, sugar and golden syrup into a saucepan and heat until the butter is melted.

Sieve the flour and ginger into the mix and stir in.

Put teaspoons of the mixture onto a greased baking tray.  Ensure they are separated to allow for spreading.

Bake for 8-12 minutes at 170 degrees or gas mark 3.

Remove when becoming firm around the edges.

Cool for 2 minutes  then roll around the greased handle of a wooden spoon.  Leave for a few second then remove and put onto a baking rack to cool.  If the biscuits on the tray start to harden before you have finished pop them back into the oven for a minute or so.

Lovely!  They taste like little ginger biscuits.  And there’s no brandy in them which is great for a teetotaller like me!
