These are easy and delicious and everyone will love them! You are guaranteed to be the top baker in your house after you have made these!


  • 4oz butter or margarine I used pure
  • 4oz of caster sugar
  • 4oz of self raising flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 a tea spoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 4 crushed ginger snaps


  • STEP 1
    Weigh out 4pz of butter or margarine, then weigh out the sugar and cream together. At this point you may want to put the oven on to 180 degrees c. Also you want to get 10 cake cases put.
  • STEP 2
    Add the two eggs, flour , baking powder and vanilla essence to your mixture and blend with a whisk.
  • STEP 3
    After blending, add the crushed ginger snaps and mix in well, then fill your cake cases with the mixture.
  • STEP 4
    Cook for 12-15 mins then get out of oven. Once they have cooled you could add some snapped up ginger nuts for decoration, however I liked to keep it simple!
