A tea time treat from New Zealand – recipe 1

A recipe all the way from New Zealand – a favourite that Karen passed to me when we lived in New Plymouth. Absolutely delicious and just the thing for freezing winter weather! Fabulously calorific …. and the first in a future series of shared special recipes

Karen’s Ginger Oaty Crunch
150g butter
2 tablespoons golden syrup
3/4 cup of brown sugar
3/4 cup dessicated coconut
1 and half cups rolled oats
3/4 cup flour (wholemeal is more healthy!)
1 and half teaspoons baking powder
1 and half teaspoons ground ginger

Ginger Icing:
4 tablespoons butter
8 tablespoons icing sugar
4 teaspoons golden syrup
2 teaspoons ground ginger

Preheat the oven to 180 c. Melt the butter, golden syrup and brown sugar. Remove from the heat. Mix in a bowl the coconut, rolled oats, flour, baking powder and ginger. Stir into the saucepan and mix thoroughly. Press into a greased tin 20 x 30 cm. Bake for 15-20 minutes. Mark into squares whilst still warm. To make the ginger icing: Melt all the ingredients together and beat. Pour over the cold biscuit base. Makes about 12 large or 24 small squares.
