Gingernuts recipe.

Doug's famous for his gingernuts. These ones come out so much better than the bought variety.


100g butter
225g sugar
1 egg
1 Tbsp golden syrup
250g flour
1 tsp baking soda
4 tsp ground ginger


Pre-heat the oven to 170ºC or 160 if you have fan-bake.

Chuck the softened butter and sugar into the food processor with the egg and give it a whiz until it's good and creamy.

Then add the golden syrup and give it another burst for a minute.

Add the flour, baking soda and ginger and whiz away until you have a nice even mixture.  

Roll into balls about the diameter of a 50c piece and arrange on sheets of baking paper on top of 2 baking trays. 

DON'T be tempted to flatten the balls with a fork, let nature and the oven do their work.

Bake for 25-30 minutes or until they look golden and just like Mrs Griffin’s fine product.

Cool on a wire rack.

You’ll get around three dozen.
