Was in need of some comforting food and really taste as well this afternoon. So I made this and boy! did it hit the spot. Ginger is so good for the tummy and the digestive system. Now I should have used all golden syrup but I didn't have enough, so used some treacle, which gave it that lovely dark colour.
Prep time 20 minutes... Cooking time 35 minutes.
340 g Self Raising Flour.
1 tablesp. Bicarb of Soda.
1 tablesp. Ground Ginger.
1 tablesp. Ground Cinnamon.
170 g Sugar (I used white)
170 g Butter.
110 g Golden Syrup.
110 g Treacle.
230 mls Milk.
120 g Glazed Ginger (chopped)
Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan, stirring the whole time.
Set aside to cool.
When cooled, add the rest of the ingredients, leaving the chopped ginger to last.
Mix well. I used a wooden spoon.
Grease a ring tin (or loaf tin) and bake in the oven at 180c (less for fan-forced) for 35 minutes.
Allow to cool and ice with a runny icing.
I dare you to stop at one slice. Enjoy.
It might look ugly but it sure tastes good!
