I don’t do a lot of gluten free baking but there are some recipes I experiment with to find a gluten free version. Check out my Gluten Free Italian Chocolate Cake! This is a simple ginger biscuit recipe which works out really well.
For 12-16 biscuits, you will need:
- 80g margarine
- 60g golden caster sugar
- 80g golden syrup
- 220g gluten-free self-raising flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 teaspoon ground ginger
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees and grease a baking tray.
Put the margarine, sugar and syrup in a saucepan and gently heat until everything has melted. Let this cool a bit.
In another bowl, using a fork, mix the flour and ginger with the beaten egg. It will look like fat breadcrumbs. Then add this straight into the pan, mixing it well with the fork so you get a decent dough. It will be a very loose, wet dough but that’s fine.
Using a teaspoon, scoop a good dollop of dough onto the baking sheet. You can fit 12-16 biscuits on. They will spread a little as you put them on the sheet due to the loose nature of the mix but they won’t spread too much further in the oven. Consequently you can space them accurately on the sheet.
Put the baking tray into the oven for about 12 minutes or until the biscuits are golden. Remove from the oven, leave to cool on the tray for a bit and then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
