Feeling peckish today I decided to try another recipe from my "Good Eating" wartime cookbook.
5 oz plain flour
4 oz oatmeal (I used porridge oats because that's what the corner shop had)
2 oz sugar
1 tsp baking powder
4 oz margarine, lard or clarified dripping (I used butter - not very ration-book friendly, I know)
2 tbsp golden syrup
1 tsp ground ginger
It says to cream the fat, sugar and syrup together first, but I just threw all the ingredients in a mixing bowl and kneaded it together. Roll out on a baking sheet, bake in a moderate oven (about 200°C I think I had it) for 10-20 minutes depending on how soft/crunchy you want them.
