Gingernut Biscuits images/gingernut.jpg 1 - 20 Biscuits
Prep: 20 min   Cook: 20 min
50g Butter
4 tbsp Golden Syrup
50g soft brown sugar
175g Self-raising flour
1 tsp ground ginger

If you don’t have self-rising flour and you have a recipe that calls for it, you can make your own by combining 1 cup all purpose flour with 1 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. Similarly, if you only have self-rising flour, you can reduce the baking powder and salt called for in a recipe that uses standard all purpose flour.

All-Purpose Flour: 1 cup = 4.5 oz = 130 gr
Preheat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5. Grease two baking sheets.
Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan until melted and the sugar has dissolved. Leave to cool slightly.
Sift flour and ground ginger into sugar mixture and stir well.
Using wetted hands make walnut sized balls of the mixture and arrange well spaced out onto the baking sheets. Flatten slightly then bake in the centre of the oven for 15-20 minutes.
Remove from the oven and transfer to a waire rack to cool completely.
