  • 100g (4oz) golden caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp Golden syrup

  • 1/2 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

  • 2 baking trays lined with baking parchment

Method

  1. Set the oven to 180°C/160c fan/gas4.

  2. Heat the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan over a low heat until the butter has melted, but do not boil.

  3. Sift the flour, ginger, mixed spice, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda together into a bowl, then tip into the melted butter mixture and gently beat to form a smooth dough.

  4. Place heaped teaspoonfuls of the mixture on to baking sheets, about 2.5cm apart to allow room for them to spread. Flatten slightly with a knife
