This makes a very deep ginger crunch!  Personally I think it looks amazing but I always end up cutting half the top off as it’s just too sweet for me.  My husband on the other hand thinks it’s perfect.  So here is the original recipe, feel free to cut the icing down to suit your taste.

1&1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground ginger
½ cup sugar
125g butter cut into cubes
place all the ingredients in a food processor and mix until fine bread crumb stage.  Press this into a lined and greased dish and bake at 180C for 25-30 minutes.

300g butter
½ cup golden syrup
4 cups icing sugar
3 Tablespoons ground ginger
Chopped crystallised ginger

Melt the butter and golden syrup in a pot.  Add the icing sugar and ground ginger.  Mix well over the heat and cook for a further minute.  Pour over the cooked base and scatter on the crystallised ginger.
