Ginger cake made with three types of ginger and a wonderful mix of dark treacle and golden syrup
1 ½ Ib self-raising flour
4 oz butter
8 oz caster sugar
Sieve flour and sugar and rub in butter, chopped into small pieces. Add whisked eggs to make a light dough.
With floured hands make the dough into golf ball sized shapes. Place these on a lightly floured tray and cover with a damp cloth for two hours.
Then roll out each of the balls into oblongs two inches by four inches. With a sharp knife slit the centre of each oblong and twist the top end (of the oblong) through the slit.
Drop four to six Wonders at a time into a large pan of hot oil, cook for 2 minutes on each side until golden brown. Drain on kitchen paper.
