I don’t make biscuits quite steadily then again those are my favourites to make when I do.  The interesting issue about them is that they’re made using spelt flour.


With peculiar flour being rarer than rooster’s teeth in the meanwhile it came about to me that one of the flours that can had been left at the back of at the grocery retailer shelf by means of the stockpilers is spelt flour.  So you need to merely be able to get your arms on some.  During which case I would extraordinarily counsel those biscuits.




They are rapid to position jointly and bake in merely 7 mins or so.  The added bonus is that the kitchen smells incredible the minute you start to melt the butter and golden syrup throughout the pan!


They appear to be a lovely, chewy, gingery biscuit, crisp at the floor and softish throughout the middle.  They don’t in reality take care of all that successfully and tend to soften quite unexpectedly – then again then conserving them isn’t steadily a problem – they’ve a bent not to hang spherical for too long in our house!




50g butter

50g golden syrup

50g preserved stem ginger from a jar, chopped lovely small

50g golden caster sugar

50g delicate easy brown sugar

1 egg yolk

150g spelt flour

1 tsp flooring ginger

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda


Preheat the oven to 200C / 180 fan / fuel mk 6.  Line two baking sheets with baking paper.

Put the butter, syrup and stem ginger in a small pan and warmth gently until the butter has melted.  Get pleasure from the glorious aroma!

Remove from the heat, beat throughout the sugars and egg yolk, followed by means of the remainder dry ingredients.  Mix jointly until successfully combined. 

Take smallish, walnut-sized pieces of the dough (mine weighed about 15g each and every) and roll into balls.  Divide the balls between the baking sheets allowing plenty of room between them for them to spread.

Bake for 7-8 mins until golden brown and puffed up.  Remove from the oven and move away at the baking sheets until they have got collapsed once more down.  Then raise them carefully onto a twine rack to cool.

Makes about 30 biscuits.
