Gingernut Biscuits

Prep Time20 mins
Cook Time10 mins
Servings: 20


  • 85 g Butter or Margarine
  • 115 g Golden Syrup
  • 225 g Self-raising Flour
  • 2 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 115 g Caster Sugar


  • Pre-heat your oven to 180°c (160°c for fan assisted ovens or Gas Mark 4) and grease a few baking sheets with a little butter and set aside.
  • Add the butter/margarine and golden syrup to a small pan and gently warm over a low-medium heat, until just melted. Alternatively in a microwave-proof bowl, in short bursts in the microwave.
  • In a large bowl, mix together the flour, ground ginger and sugar, before adding the melted butter/margarine and syrup. Mix well to create a sticky dough.
  • Roll the dough into balls (about 1 tbp of dough per ball) and place onto your pre-greased baking sheets, with a reasonable amount of space between them - they do spread whilst baking.
  • Bake in your pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes until golden. Once cool enough to touch, transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
