Sieve (strain) the flour and put ginger, soda, and sugar in it. Add all the dry ingredients in the bowl of syrup and knead the dough. Do not add water. Then roll it and cut into shapes.


It requires a moderately hot oven and takes 10 to 15 minutes to bake. Keep them separate, as they swell a little.

Spread a tissue paper in the deep-cake pan and over it, some butter. Put the mixture into it, see that the sides do not become dirty. The mixture should be poured, into the middle of the pan. Flat tin can do not require papers. This cake takes ¾ of an hour or one hour to bake.
