1 cup self-raising flour
1 cup plain flour
1 tsp ground ginger
2¼ cups pure icing sugar, sifted
1 tbsp ground ginger (extra)

1 Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a 30cm x 20cm (base) lamington pan with baking paper. Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugar until light and pale. Sift flours and ginger into butter mixture and stir until well combined. Press mixture into base of prepared pan. Prick base with a fork.
