Sweet and Spicy Treacle Ginger Cake
pot, 2 bowls, fork, wooden spoon, baking tin, oven
- 28⅛ g dark brown sugar
- 28⅛ g golden syrup
- 28⅛ g molasses (treacle)
- 28⅛ g salted butter or margarine
Melt sugar, butter, treacle and syrup in a pan
- 56¼ g Self-raising Flour
- ¼ tsp ground ginger
- ¼ tsp Mixed spice (or just cinnamon would do)
Mix flour, ginger, mixed spice in a bowl
- ¼ eggs
- 37½ ml milk (semi-skimmed or whole milk)
Gently whisk the eggs with the milk.
- wooden spoon
Add the milk and eggs mixture and melted butter mixture to the bowl containing dry flour mix.
- baking tin
Pour into greased baking tray/loaf tin (30 x 23 x 4cm) lined with grease proof paper.
Place in the top shelf of your oven set to 160°C/325°F/Gas Mark 3 for ~50 minutes or until risen and golden. I like to cook it to the point that it’s still gooey inside.
Allow to cool in baking tray slightly and then place on a cooling rack. You should be able to cut it into 16 generous slices.
Enjoy your meal!
