Ginger Crunch – Recipe

This is another kiwi classic that I remember from childhood that was a favourite with my Grandma.  These days it is a common cafe slice.  It’s easy to make and keeps well in the fridge.

1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp baking powder

100 grams butter
1 cup icing sugar

Add the dry ingredients and mix well.
Press into the tin and bake for 20 or until golden brown
Remove from oven and prepare topping

Put all the ingredients in a saucepan
Heat until butter is melted and all ingredients are well combined
Pour over the base while still warm
