  • About


  • 6oz plain flour
  • ½ level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ level teaspoon ginger
  • 1 level teaspoon mixed spice
  • 1 level teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3oz butter
  • 2oz caster sugar
  • 2 tablespoons black treacle


    Sift together the dry ingredients. Put butter, sugar and treacle into a pan and melt slowly over a low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the sifted dry ingredients. Work with fingertips until well blended. Roll the mixture into small balls and transfer to greased baking trays, allowing plenty of room between each for spreading. Press flat with a knife or the prongs of a fork. Bake in the centre of the oven, at 350°F, 180°C, gas mark 4 for 10-15 minutes. Cool on a wire tray, then store in an airtight container.
