For this recipe I used Opies Stem Ginger in Syrup. 

Preheat Oven to 190C / 375F / Gas Mark 5

Line a baking tray with Greaseproof paper


6oz / 175g Plain Flour

1 dessertspoon of the syrup from  the Opies Ginger

1 teaspoon ground ginger powder

1 egg

5 pieces of stemmed ginger cut into small pieces.


Into a pan put the butter and melt slowly on a low heat.    When fully melted place to one side.

Into a bowl put the flour, baking powder, ginger powder and sugar.  Mix well.

In a smaller bowl put the ginger syrup and an egg. Beat well.

Into the bowl of dry mixtures pour in the melted butter and the egg/ginger mix.   Also add the chopped stemmed ginger.
