8 ozs Self Raising Flour
a pinch of salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
4 ozs Caster Sugar or soft brown sugar
3 ozs Butter
4 tablespoons of Golden Syrup
1 egg, beaten

Oven 180 C, 350 F or gas mark 4

Mix the dry ingredients together and warm the syrup and butter either in the microwave or in a pan.  Add to the dry ingredients with the beaten egg and mix well.  Place teaspoons on a baking sheet leaving plenty of room and bake for 15 mins.  Remove from the tray and cool on a wire rack.
