  • 350g plain flour

Step 1

Grease your baking tray.

Step 2

In a large mixing bowl, add flour, ginger and the bicarbonate of soda then rub in the butter.

Step 3

Add sugar and stir in the syrup and egg to make a firm dough.

Step 4

Roll out to about 5mm thick and cut out your gingerbread men. If you don’t have a gingerbread man cutter then use whatever you have – stars and hearts are just as tasty.
