Since I started my baking obsession, I’ve had more and more requests from friends and family to make little goodies for them. My dad loves biscuits, so this week I’m on a biscuit mission for him and first up are Ginger Biscuits.
This recipe again is super easy (who knew?!) and makes slightly chewy, sugary biscuits with a lovely little ginger bite. I love the way baking looks and tastes and these simple yet, tasty treats tick all the boxes for me, but mainly they go great with a cuppa! Dad certainly gave them the thumbs up so spoil someone you love and try baking them for yourself, they won’t be disappointed. This recipe makes about 25/30 biscuits.
1 beaten egg.
1/2 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1/2 tablespoon of ground ginger
125g self-raising flour
50g light muscovado sugar
50g demerara sugar
A big old 1/2 teaspoon on golden syrup
Set the oven to 160 degrees celcius and pop greaseproof paper onto 2 baking trays.
Mix all of the dry ingredients together in a bowl.
Put the butter and golden syrup onto a low heat and keep stirring until the butter has melted. Add this and the beaten egg into your dry mixture and mix together.
Using teaspoons, put small balls of the dough onto your baking sheets.
Cook for 15-20 minutes, until the biscuits are perfectly formed pieces of gingery heaven; or until golden brown.
Leave to cool on a wire rack and bada bing bada boom, you’re ready to treat someone!
Good luck kiddos and happy baking.
