Mum made these for us when we were kids. And, the recipe now comes to you from her hand written recipe book:
2 cups self raising flour
1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
2 tablespoons milk
1 dessertspoon golden syrup
Heat milk, bicarb of soda and golden syrup. Beat butter and sugar until creamy then add hot liquid. Stir in sifted flour.
Drop teaspoons on a greased tray allowing room to spread. Press down with a fork. Bake in moderate oven 10 to 15 minutes. While still hot lift on to cooling rack.
(note from Becca - I make the mixture more rounded like a ball before placing on tray and pressing with a fork)
