  • 100g self-raising flour sieved

  • 100g butter or margarine

  • 50g sugar

  • 2 eggs beaten

  • 1 tbsp icing sugar to dust

  • 1 tbsp ginger preserve heaped


  1. Cream the butter and sugar together well.
  2. Add the beaten eggs a small amount at a time, mixing well in between.
  3. Warm the ginger preserve slightly so that it is runny and add to the cake mixture. Mix well.
  4. Fold in the flour gently, (so as not to knock out the air from the mixture).
  5. Spoon into bun cases and cook at 200C for about 10-15 minutes, until golden brown.
  6. Dust with icing sugar or decorate however you prefer.

Handy Hint

Feel free to use a cake mixer until the point where you add flour. Once you add flour you need to treat the mixture gently.
