  • 8 oz plain flour
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground mixed spice
  • 3 oz fine oatmeal
  • 3 oz caster sugar
  • 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 6 oz treacle
  • 2 oz butter


  • Put the flour, ginger, spice, oatmeal, sugar and bicarbonate of soda in a bowl and mix together.
  • Heat the treacle and butter in a small pan until melted. Pour on to dry ingredients and mix to make a smooth dough. Knead well.
  • Roll the dough out until about 0.5 cm (1/4 inch) thick. Prick with a fork and cut out 6.5 cm (2 1/2 inch) rounds with a plain cutter. Place on greased baking sheets and bake at 170°C (325°F) mark 3 for 20-25 minutes, until firm to the touch. Transfer to wire racks to cool.
