Great recipe as can be made with gluten free flour as well as ordinary and you get the same results. Add a little extra ginger or some cardamom.
9 inch square or 2 2lb loaf tins 160 c for 1- 1 hour 15 mins
4oz/125g of butter or marg.
4oz/125g of golden syrup
5oz/150g black treacle
4oz/125g granulated sugar
10oz/275g plain flour (or gluten free flour)
2 tsp ground ginger
1 level tsp bicarbonate of soda
7 fl oz milk ( can be semi skimmed)
1 beaten egg.
Melt the butter or marg,sugar,treacle and syrup in a large pan over a low heat, allow to cool slightly add the flour, spices and bicarb this is best done with a whisk to get the lumps of flour out.
Add the egg and milk and mix well it will be very runny this is normal. Pour in lined tin or tins and bake. This cake can be frozen and also keeps well in a tin.
