Paul’s Mum’s Ginger Biscuits

This recipe was sent in by my mum. It is impossible to eat just one of these deliciously morish biscuits, as I can clearly remember from my childhood! If you cook these just a bit longer than stated below then you can use them as ‘dunkers’. I hope I do you proud mum!


  • 110g  margarine

  • 225g self-raising flour

  • 110g caster sugar

  • 110g golden syrup

  • 2 teaspoons ginger


  • 1.

    Heat oven to 180c

  • 2.

    Melt the margarine, caster sugar and golden syrup gently in a pan over a medium heat.

  • 3.

    Once melted, add all of the dry ingredients to the pan to form a dough.

  • 4.

    Roll the dough into 50 pence-size balls. Place these individual balls onto a baking tray. Mark the back of each ball with a fork. The dough should make about 40 biscuits.

  • 5.

    Put the baking tray into the oven for about 12 minutes, or until golden brown.
