How to make ginger crunch slice

Before making a start on this recipe, first preheat the oven to 190c. Line a slice tin with baking paper and set aside.

Add the softened butter and sugar to the bowl of a stand mixer and beat until the butter it light and fluffy. Add the plain flour, baking powder and ground ginger to the mixer and mix until well combined. The mixture will be fairly dry and crumbly at this point.

Turn the mixture onto a lightly floured bench and knead the mixture together. Press the mixture firmly into the prepared slice tin. Bake for 20 minutes.

Pour the icing over the hot slice. Cut the slice into small squares before the slice cools completely. Store the slice in an airtight container at room temperature.
