I saw Al Brown refer to these as gold bars today so I had to share my recipe for these.
Like many others I grew up with my Nana making these and it was always what we found when we went through the tins in her pantry.
What your going to need here is:
125 grm butter unsalted
1/2 cup sugar
1 1 /2 cup plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground ginger
Cream the butter and sugar till light and fluffy.
Sift flour, Baking powder and ginger together.
Mix into the creamed mixture.
Press into a lined tin
Bake at 190’c for 20-25mins until lightly browned, pour over the icing mix while still warm and let the slice set and rest once cold then slice up and enjoy.
Trust me one piece is never enough!
3/4 cup icing sugar
2 TBSP golden syrup
3 tsp ground ginger
Heat all these together till melted and smooth and pour over base.
any questions please just send me message.
