Classic Ginger Slice (‘Ginger Crunch’)

Yet another recipe for a delicious ginger slice…… and it gets better, because I still have more to post! This is the original of all original ginger slices and is a Kiwi favourite πŸ™‚


This is from my recipe book (school project) a few years ago, so I only have one photo, sorry. But it’s a really good and easy recipe! I have an Ginger Anzac Slice and Oaty Ginger Slice recipe that I’ve already posted, so you can check them out if you want!

Ginger Crunch Recipe

100g butter
1/2 cup sugar
1&1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
3 tsp ground ginger
50g butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
2 Tbsp golden syrup
3 tsp ground ginger

Preheat the oven to 180Β°C and line a 20x30cm slice tin with baking paper.

Soften the butter and beat with the sugar until light and fluffy. Add the flour, baking powder and ginger a bit at a time, beating well after each addition. Press into the slice tin and bake for 20 minutes, until golden.

While the base is baking, make the ginger topping. Melt the butter and mix in the icing sugar, golden syrup and ginger until smooth. When the base has cooked, take the slice out and pour the icing on top.Β  Leave until the icing has set. Cut into squares and store in an airtight container.
Makes about 30 squares, lasts for a few days!

Have a wonderful day πŸ™‚

  1. I love a good slice. My grandmother used to make the most amazing array of slices for when the grandchildren visited, arranged in tiny squares on a plate they were like a homey version of petit fours. Love your blog.
