The recipe is super easy and quick to make and results in a delicious crunchy and warming ginger spiced biscuit. Just like the traditional ginger nuts I loved as a kid. Perfect for dipping into a big mug of tea as the nights draw in and winter takes hold.
Serves: 12
  • 50g butter
  • 4 tbsp golden syrup
  • 50g soft brown sugar
  • 175g self-raising flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • Pinch of salt
  1. Preheat oven to 180c/160c Fan
  2. Gently melt butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved and all the ingredients are combined.
  3. Take pan off the heat and sift flour and ground ginger into the sugar mixture and stir well until the mixture forms a dough. Allow to cool for a few minutes.
  4. With wet hands make walnut sized balls of the dough and place well onto the baking sheets allowing space to spread. Flatten slightly then bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes. Watch them closely as they can burn quickly.
  5. Remove from the oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool.
