  • 50g unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ground cardamon
  • 1/4 tsp fine salt
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil



    Pre-heat your oven to 180 degrees Celsius.

    Place the butter and sugar into a mixer and beat on high for 4-5 minutes or until pale. 

    Add the egg and golden syrup and mix well. Sieve the flour, baking powder, ginger, cardamon, cinnamon and salt into the batter mix. 

    Fold till combined.

    Mix the baking soda with the milk and stir until well dissolved. Fold through the batter mix. Set aside and allow to rest for 20 minutes. 

    Place the EngelElzen Gem Iron into the oven to pre-heat. 

    Taking the Gem Iron out of the oven, place a little oil into each gem and quickly using a pastry brush, carefully brush up the sides. Tip a tablespoon of the batter into each space and place back in the middle of the oven to bake for 15 minutes. 

    Remove from the oven and leave for 5 minutes before removing from the pan. Allow to cool on a wire rack.
