By ruthmaria on 30 November 2008 | Viewed 79604 times

Delicious ginger crunch, that all my non-gluten free friends/family thought was the “real deal”!!


125g butter, softened
1/2 cup White Sugar
1 1/2 cups Healthries Simple wheat & gluten free Baking mix
1 teaspoon gluten free baking power
1 teaspoon ground ginger

Ginger Icing
75g butter
1 cup Icing Sugar
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
3 teaspoons ground ginger


1) Preheat oven to 190*C.
2) Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
3) Sift flour, baking powder and ginger together.
4) Mix into creamed mixture. Turn dough onto a lightly floured board. Knead well. Press dough into a greased 20 x 30 cm sponge roll tin.
5) Bake for 20 – 25 minutes or until light brown.
6) Pour ginger icing over base while hot and cut into squares before it gets cold.

Ginger Icing
In a small saucepan combine butter, icing sugar, golden syrup and ginger. Heat until butter is melted, stirring constantly.

agree with all these comments - great recipe! I made it with lite Olivio in place of butter for a dairy and gluten free friend, it worked really well.

My husband absolutely loves ginger crunch and went so long without it.  When he finally found GF ginger crunch he was happy, but when I found this recipe and made it for him he was over the moon, he says its the best one he has ever had.  Even my sister in law who is not GF has it and even said it is better than any other ginger crunch she has had…so thanks so much for this recipe you have made some happy people out there grin

This was awesome, my girl is sugar free too so I substituted the golden syrup for honey and the sugar for natural sweet, and the icing sugar for fibre sweet. I will have one happy girl after school today!
