Any self respecting baker in New Zealand would have a 'traditional' ginger crunch recipe to hand passed down from their Mum or Grandmother. The crunch should be buttery and crispy (unlike the awful commercial varierty which is thick and doughy). I always up the amount of ginger in the base and topping so it can truely be called Ginger Crunch.

Method

  1. Put all of the ingredients into a food processor and process until the mixture forms fine crumbs.
  2. Press into a shallow 30cm x 21cm tin. If non stick base lined with baking paper
  3. Bake 20-25 minutes in a preheated 180c oven until a pale, golden brown.
  4. While the base is cooking make the topping. Melt all of the topping ingredients over a medium heat unitl runny, well combined and the sugar has melted. Immediately pour the topping over the base as soon as its cooked. Leave to cool a little for the topping to set.
  5. Then slice into 12 squares.
