Makes about 30

Deliciously crunchy delectable home-made biscuits, so more-ish that they disappear very quickly!

Preparation: 10 minutes

Cooking: 8 - 10 minutes


4oz soft margarine

2oz Demerara sugar

2 tablespoons golden syrup

8oz self-raising flour

Pinch of salt

3 level teaspoons ground ginger

Half teaspoon bicarbonate of soda


1. Heat oven to 180 degrees C.

2. Place the flour, salt and ginger in a mixing bowl and mix together.

3. Put the margarine, sugar and syrup in a small saucepan, and bring to the boil, until margarine has melted. Add the bicarbonate of soda and stir until it froths.

4. Pour it onto the flour, and stir until you have a medium consistency. [If mixture appears to be too greasy / soft, add a little more flour to it.]

5. Grease 2 baking sheets, and place walnut-sized knobs of mixture onto the trays, patting down slightly, and leaving a little space in between each.

6. Bake at 180 degrees C for 8 - 10 minutes.

[If mixture does spread, it is easy to cut between the lines with a spatula as they come out of the oven.]

Remove onto a cooling rack, then put into a biscuit tin when cool.
