Ron's Ginger Dunkers

Crunchy on the outside & chewy in the middle with a good punch of ginger heat these biscuits are great for dunking!


Makes about 20 biscuits at approx 10p each



  • 100g butter
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 60g caster sugar
  • 175g plain flour, sifted
  • 1tbsp ground ginger
  • 1tsp bicarbonate of soda

Preheat the oven to 170C/Gas 3, & grease & line two baking trays.

Melt the butter, golden syrup & sugar in a small saucepan for 5-6 minutes until the sugar is almost dissolved.

Remove the saucepan from the heat & stir in the flour, ground ginger & bicarbonate of soda. Set aside to cool for 15 minutes.

Scoop out about a tbsp of the mixture & roll into a ball & repeat with the rest of the mixture, place on the baking trays & press down gently. Make sure they are spaced about 2cm apart as they will spread during cooking.

Bake for about 10-15 minutes or until golden in colour. Leave to cool on the trays then transfer to a wire rack.

Serve with a lovely cup of tea!
