The wind is howling and it feels very November grey and miserable outside so I decided to entertain the little lady and make something delicious for the rest of the family after school.
After making a yummy latte in my favourite Cath cup I was ready to begin cooking with a toddler...
This delicious and super quick and easy recipe was given to me by my mum. I have always called these little ginger biscuits "Cornish Farlings" because that is what she wrote at the top of the recipe, however I found out today (thank you google) they are actually known as "Cornish Fairings'. Fairings being any item bought as a gift at a fair, edible or not. Anyway history aside I decided to share it with all my lovely blog readers, and keep it as a handy reference to save me having to hunt for it in the future.
You will need these ingredients:
4oz Butter (but I always use marg)
1 tablespoon Golden Syrup
6oz Self Raising Flour
Pinch of Bicarb of Soda
1 teaspoon of Ground Ginger
3 oz Caster Sugar
(I always double or quadruple the amount but I do have lots of hungry children to feed!)
1. Heat marg and syrup in a pan over a low heat
|Starts like this...|
|Looks like this very quickly|
2.Stir in sieved (I never bother) flour, bicarb, ginger & sugar - Mix well
|It looks a bit like this|
4. Bake for around 10 minutes (until golden in colour) at 200 C or gas mark 5
5. Leave on a tray for a few minutes then transfer to a wire cooling rack
Then return to your lovely cup of something delicious, feeling like a wonderful mother whilst trying not to eat them all!
Not forgetting the small child who needs a reward for all their 'help'.
