Toast both kinds of nuts without fat.
Beat eggs and sugar to make a creamy mass. Sift flour and baking powder into the same bowl. Add nuts and ginger and knead together.
From the sticky soft dough form a small loaf of at least 25 cm length. Bake for 160°C for 45 min on a baking sheet lined with non-stick paper till golden.
Leave to cool for 20 minutes. Then cut into 1 cm thick slices. Bake slices for 10 minutes from each side.
(if slices are too big half diagonally before second baking like in the picture)
I tried these for the first time today and they are lovely!
Mmmm, I love candied ginger, have to give this one a try.
They were great this morning with a lovely cup of tea
Made these this afternoon, substituting pecans for the walnuts (not keen on walnuts), & adding 1 tsp ground ginger (we like a bit more pep!) & they turned out really well. Thanks for the recipe.
You're welcome. The recipe I derived this from called for pecans really. But pecans here are much rarer and more expensive and it was a spontaneous thing, so I used walnuts. And as I did not have enough left, I used almonds too.
I also tweaked the method a little and voilá.
So basically you changed it back
But I LOVE walnuts and thought the almonds worked well, so was quite happy with "my" version
