Orange Gingernut Biscuits

The heat of ginger is just divine and the combination with orange just puts a massive smile on my face! Absolutely delicious dunked in a cup of tea, softening these crunchy biscuits.

They can be made super quickly, giving you and your family a perfect snack to snuggle up on the sofa with as quick as a flash! They’re a lovely golden colour, begging you to dive into them and gobble them all up!

Ingredients

  • 120g Plain Flour
  • 1.25 tsp Ground Ginger
  • 1 tsp Bicarbonate of Soda
  • 45g Granulated Sugar
  • 50g Butter (unsalted)
  • 2tsp Orange Peel
  • 60g Golden Syrup

Method

  1. Line 2 baking trays with baking parchment so that your biscuits don’t burn to the tray and stick! Preheat the oven to 190 degrees (Fan oven).
  2. Mix all of the dry ingredients (Flour, Ginger, Bicarb and Sugar) into a bowl so that they’re evenly distributed.
  3. Chop the butter up into small chunks and then use your fingers (clean of course!) to rub the butter into the biscuits and form a breadcrumb texture.
  4. Finally, Add in the syrup and orange peel and mix them in until you have a smooth texture which is stiff enough to roll into balls and form biscuits with (I told you there wasn’t much too it!)
  5. Divide the mixture up into 16 round balls and flatten them with the palm of your hand on the baking tray so they aren’t quite perfectly spherical. Make sure there enough room for them to spread a little so they don’t spread into each other!
  6. Cook them in the oven for 10-15 minutes until they have spread out and cracked so that they are perfectly hard and crunchy.

Enjoy and dunk into a lovely cup of tea!

I told you it was easy and definitely something you can whip up as quick as a flash!
