Ginger and Orange Florentines
Make: 20

50g unsalted butter | 50g caster sugar | 50g golden syrup | 50g plain flour | 50g flaked almonds* other nuts like pistachios, pecans, | 50g candied orange peel, chopped into 5mm dice | 30g stem ginger, chopped into 5mm dice | 150g orange-flavoured milk chocolate or dark chocolate, broken into pieces.

EQUIPMENT
3 baking trays, lined with baking paper

5-6cm round cutter (optional)

METHOD

Step 1:
 Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/350°F/Gas 4. Place the butter, sugar and syrup in a small pan and cook over a medium heat for 2-3 minutes, stirring until the sugar has dissolved. Remove from the heat and add the flour, almonds, orange peel and crystallised ginger. Stir until well combined, taking care not to break up the flaked almonds.

Step 2:
 Using a 1tsp measuring spoon, place 24 equal mounds of the mixture onto the lined baking trays, spacing the mounds well apart. (Using a measuring spoon will help you get evenly sized biscuits.) Bake for 10 minutes, until golden brown, then remove from the oven. If you want neat edges, use the round cutter to push any uneven edges into a neat circle, while the florentines are still warm on the baking trays.

Step 3:
 Leave the florentines to cool on the trays for about 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Step 4: Melt the chocolate in a bowl set over a pan of gently simmering water. Turn the florentines upside down on the wire rack and spread the chocolate over the bases. Leave them to set at room temperature for 5-10 minutes, then use a fork to make ripples in the chocolate. Leave the florentines to set completely.

Other variations
ginger, pecan & cranberry
ginger & glace cherries
ginger & sesame seed
ginger & pistachios
ginger & apricots
ginger & dates

Elevate your bakes with the ginger chunks and then use the syrup for the likes of pancakes, porridge, stewed fruit, yoghurt, sparkling water or wine, maybe a dressing for some salmon or prawns. Why not grill some apple slices and place on bread with orange zest and drizzle the syrup on top. The fun doesn’t stop there, add to an evening cocktail or mocktail. Heat up some apple juice for a warm cider drink.
