Whether you’re making a gingerbread house, or biscuits to share with family and friends, this is a surefire gingerbread recipe.

125g unsalted butter
100g dark muscovado sugar (unrefined brown sugar)
4 tablespoons golden syrup
325g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 teaspoons ground ginger
Writing icing to decorate (optional)

Preheat the oven to 170°C. Line two baking trays with baking parchment. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup in a medium saucepan, stirring occasionally, then remove from the heat. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda and ginger into a bowl and then add the melted ingredients, combining to make a stiff dough.

Remove from the oven and place on a wire cooling tray. When completely cool, decorate with the icing – then enjoy!
