Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 180°C and line two flat baking trays with parchment.

  2. Sieve the flour, bread soda and ground ginger together.

  3. Place the butter, golden syrup and sugar into a heavy-based saucepan over a low heat until they melt and combine. This will happen well before boiling point.

  4. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture. Add the oats, raisins and crystalised ginger and combine.

  5. Divide the dough into 16 balls and flatten each one onto the baking tray, leaving a little room between each.

  6. Bake for about 10 minutes until they are just turning golden. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
