Unconventional method, and yes, it IS self-raising flour. Very easy and quick to make, not very sweet (perfect for us), and cooked quickly. I'd make it again. - 11 Jul 2014
Quick and easy. I don't have treacle so I use golden syrup instead and I use brown sugar. It turns out great too. Thank you for sharing the recipe. - 23 Nov 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
Altered ingredient amounts. I halved this recipe & thought it was not gingery enough for me: ended up adding about 1.5 more tsp ginger & still not as gingerbread tasting compared to other recipes. A half recipe made 100 mini gingerbread men (using 4x3cm cutter) and cooked at 165 degrees (fan-forced) for 8mins. - 30 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes AU | NZ)
