80g castor sugar
30g golden syrup
25g grated fresh ginger

Sift flour, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a mixing bowl. Add ground ginger, cinnamon powder and salt to mix.
Cream butter and sugar until light, then beat in the golden syrup and grated ginger.
Stir in the sifted dry ingredients to mix. Lightly form the mixture into a ball of dough.
Roll out between two plastic sheets. Stamp out into rounds. Place on lightly greased trays and sprinkle over with demerara sugar. Bake in a preheated oven at 180°C for about 13-15 minutes.
