Gloriously Gorgeous Gingerbread

This one is another one for Michelle, and also for Lee (though I am sorry it is not the sticky kind).

You will need

  • 100g butter
  • 3 tbsp golden syrup
  • 350g self-raising flour
  • 1-2 tsp ground ginger
  • 100g caster sugar
  • 1 egg (beaten)

How to make them

  1. Melt the butter and syrup together over a low heat
  2. Mix the flour, ginger and sugar together in a bowl
  3. Add the butter/syrup mix – stir slightly
  4. Add the beaten egg – stir gently
  5. Knead until smooth
  6. Leave for 15 minutes to cool
  7. Roll out on a lightly floured surface to approx. 1/2 cm thick
  8. Cut into the desired shapes and place on lightly greased baking tray
  9. GAS MARK 4 / 180 0c for 8 minutes until golden
  10. Allow to cool on the tray, then eat!


  • Divide the ball of dough into smaller sections before you roll it out – this recipe makes a LOT of gingerbread!
