• 230g Plain flour
  • 100g soft brown sugar
  • 110g golden syrup
  • pinch salt
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 heaped tsp ground ginger
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 80g unsalted butter (you can add a little more if you prefer a more sticky dough)


  • STEP 1
    Pre-heat the oven to 180°C (approx gas 5) and grease 2 large baking trays
  • STEP 2
    Mix together the flour, sugar, salt, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon in a bowl
  • STEP 3
    add the golden syrup and the butter and mix together well until it forms a soft workable dough. (If it is too crumbly you can add a little more butter, or if it is too sticky add a little more flour)
  • STEP 4
    Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1cm thick and use a cutter of your choice to cut them into shapes
  • STEP 5
    Lay out the shapes on the baking trays allowing a little room for them to expand
  • STEP 6
    Cook for around 10-15 minutes depending on how chewy you want them (the longer time the harder they will be)
