These are the easiest biscuits to make and perfect for when you have a visitor drop in unexpectedly. For me, I make a batch of these every week and my son devours them. Such a quick recipe, you can be eating these bad boys in 15 minutes. Also a great recipe for cooking with kids as they can get their hands dirty making the breadcrumbs and help out with rolling the doughballs. A great advantage of this kid friendly recipe is that there are no raw eggs involved, so licking the bowl is allowed.

So quick - 15 minutes from start to finish

4oz self raising flour
2oz granulated sugar
1 teaspoon bicarb of soda
1 teaspoon ginger (ground ginger)
2 oz butter - softened
2 oz golden syrup

What to do
With the exception of the golden syrup, mix all of the above ingredients into breadcrumbs

Add 2 oz Golden syrup to the breadcrumb mix and using a spoon, mix to a dough. This will be a slightly sticky texture.

Take generous teaspoons of the mixture and handroll into small balls and place onto baking tray. (I line my baking tray with baking paper for ease)

Leave room for the dough balls to expand whilst baking

Bake for 10 mins in a preheated oven - 180 degrees in a fan forced oven, or 200 degrees in a standard oven.

Don't be tempted to overcook or they go a bit too hard and crunchy (unless this is your preference). I like the slightly chewy/gooey texture. Once out of the oven, leave them on the tray to stand for 5 minutes where they will harden.
