250 g butter, melted (plus extra for greasing)

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup golden syrup
  • 2 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder

    Add the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl and beat together till the mixture becomes soft and creamy in texture. Add the golden syrup and mix well.
  • STEP 3
    Using a sieve, shift the flour, ground cinnamon and ginger into the mixture. This will make sure that the mixture remains smooth and not lumpy.
