Easy baking: Ginger snaps | A Mary Berry recipe

Good things come


I won’t go into my disastrous baking weekend but i will say MARY BERRY GOT ME MAD. For like a second, then i saw these scrummy ginger snaps – Which if you buy from the shops are jut basically ginger biscuits. Tasty dipped in a cup of tea!
I could go through a whole pack in a day, but my dieting has slowly emerged and i am trying to eat well.

Want to know how to make ginger snaps like the legendary Mary Berry? Keep reading for the ingredients and how i did it – OH and some really bad pictures. I used the Mary Berry’s complete cook book – Which is still on offer by the way (It’s an affiliate code, it won’t cost you more to buy but i might earn a lil something.) Okay and a way we go!!

60g  butter, plus a lil extra for greasing
90g golden syrup
125g self raising flour
2tsp ground ginger
1tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1tbsp caster sugar

How to  – Makes 15

1. Grease two baking trays with a bit of butter ( I used one but yeah i should of used two LOL)
Combine the butter and golden syrup in a saucepan and heat gently until melted. Leave to cool slightly – I put mine in the fridge til it was cool but still warmish


2. Sift the flour, spices and baking soda in a bowl and stir in the sugar.
Add the cooked syrup mixture, stir and mix to make a soft but NOT stitcky dough.
(By none sticky, she means so it isn’t sticking to your fingers like a goopy mess – It should be nice and soft with a smooth feeling)

keep mixing!!!!


3. Roll the dough out into balls, the size of a walnut. Place WELL a part on the baking tray, and flatten slightly with the heel of your wrist.
Won’t like, i probably didn’t roll them to the exact size who does? Don’t worry about that!

4. Bake in preheated oven at around 190 degrees, for 15 minutes. Leave the biscuits to cool for a few minutes and then transfer to a rack and let cool completely.
I literally just left them on the baking tray too cool down LOL



DONT cook these in the oven til they are rock hard. After 15 minutes of baking they will be slightly soft GOOD, let them cool and they will go hard.

You might want to adjust with the spices – I added exact amount of ginger and cinnamon and i think i could of done without the cinnamon.

That’s literally all you need to do – HOW EASY!?!?!?!!?

If you make some of these please let me know in the comments, link me your blog and show me your bake 🙂

Don’t forget Mary Berry’s cook book is still on offer!!!! £9.99 instead of £30


Thanks for reading xo
