Made Dunkers Today

Fond memories of waking up on a freezing cold Dunedin day snuggled up in my grandparents bed waiting for Pop to bring us an early morning cup of tea and gingernuts to dunk. They used to be the Griffins gingernut and impossible to eat unless you dunked them into a hot drink. Decided I would find a recipe today and make my own. The recipe is pretty easy and I had to use some cinnamon because I was almost out of the ginger. The got the tick from hubby, so must be okay 🙂


Homemade Gingernuts
120g Self Raising Flour

Pinch Salt

10ml Ground Ginger Powder

½ t Bicarbonate of Soda

45g White Sugar

60g Salted Butter

60g Golden Syrup

Method :

1) Sift the flour, salt, ginger, bicarb and sugar together

2) Heat the butter and the syrup until melted in the microwave

3) Mix the melted butter and syrup into the dry ingredients to form a soft mixture

4) Shape into the desired shapes and place onto a greased tray

5) Bake at 180’C until cooked for about 10 – 15 minutes
