Let’s Share the Ginger Love

Author: Josh Martin

As the world celebrates Kiss a Ginger Day (12 January) we thought we’d bring you a feisty ginger biscuit recipe, using fresh ginger, that the whole family will love. The great news: You don’t have to be a redhead to enjoy these crunchy treats.


  • 100g salted butter, cubed
  • 75g light brown soft sugar
  • 1 tbsp grated fresh ginger
  • 100g golden syrup
  • 250g self-raising flour
  • 1½ tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 small egg yolk, beaten

(Makes 20 biscuits)


  1. Heat the oven to 190˚C. Line two large baking trays with Twinsaver baking paper. In a saucepan over low heat, melt the butter, sugar, fresh ginger and golden syrup and leave to cool.
  2. Mix the flour, ground ginger and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl with a wooden spoon. Gradually stir in the cooled sugar mixture and the egg yolk and knead briefly to make a dough.
  3. Roll the dough into 20g balls and put on the prepared baking trays with 3cm between each to allow for spreading. Bake for 8-10 mins until golden brown. Leave to cool on the trays for a minute, then transfer to a cooling rack to cool completely.
