1 Cup of Salt
2 Cups of water

Craft – Making Holey biscuits


  • 350g/12oz  plain flour
  • 1 tsp  bicarbonate of soda
  • ½ tsp  salt
  • 2 tsp  ground ginger
  • 100g/3½oz  butter
  • 175g/6oz soft brown sugar
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 4 tbsp  golden syrup

Preparation method

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/Gas 4.
  2. For the biscuits, mix the flour, bicarbonate of soda (I know Himani has this), salt and ginger together in a bowl.
  3. Rub in the butter until the mixture resembles fine breadcrumbs, then stir in the sugar.
  4. In another bowl, beat together the egg and golden syrup, then pour this mixture into the flour mixture and mix to make a smooth dough, kneading lightly with your hands.
  5. Roll the dough out on a floured work surface to about 0.5cm/¼in thick, then cut into shapes.
  6. Transfer the biscuits to baking sheets lined with baking paper.
  7. Cut out smaller shapes in the centre of each biscuit, making sure you leave a good edge all around the biscuit.
  8. Bake the biscuits in the oven for 10-12 minutes, or until golden-brown.
  9. Remove the biscuits from the oven. Do not remove the biscuits from the baking tray until they have cooled a bit. Gently lift the biscuits onto a wire rack with a palette knife to finish cooling.
  10. If you like you can decorate the biscuits.
