Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas mark 5. Grease a 33 × 23 cm (13 × 9 in) Swiss roll tin and line with baking parchment.
Melt the butter and golden syrup over low heat, about 5 minutes.
Sift the flour, bicarbonate and ginger into a bowl; stir in the melted syrup mixture, caster sugar and eggs. Turn the mixture into the Swiss roll tin and spread so that the surface is level. Sprinkle the demerara sugar evenly over the top.
Bake in the preheated oven until well risen and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes.
Leave the mixture to cool slightly, cut into 24 pieces and lift on to a wire try to cool before serving.
