Thank you Nicole for sharing this recipe.


1/2 cup (125g) caster suger
1/2 cup (155g) treacle
1½ teaspoons powdered ginger
1 teaspoon mixed spice
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons baking soda
125g butter
1 egg, beaten
3 1/2 cups (435g) self-raising flour

Preparation method

1.In a large saucepan heat sugar, treacle, ginger, mixed spice and cinnamon till it comes to the boil. Stirring occasionally.
2.Remove from heat and stir in baking soda.
3.Add butter and stir gently till melted.
4.With a fork, stir in egg, then gradually add the flour.
5.Dough will appear crumbly, but one you start kneading, dough will come together nicely.
6.Wrap one half of the dough in glad wrap. This will stop it drying out until your ready to use it. - Do not put in the fridge it will go too hard.
7.Roll dough to about half a cm thick ( thicker or thinner depending on taste), cut with favourite cutters.
8.Bake at 165 C for about 10 mins (fan forced)

Love and hugs,
