This English gingerbread loaf  recipe is very traditional, it is moist, rich and treacly, a great afternoon tea treat. Top tip, for an extra tasty twist, mix up some icing sugar with some fresh lime juice for a real zing which compliments the ginger perfectly.  

Method

  1. Preheat your oven to 160°C (fan 140°C, gas mark 3) and line a 2lb loaf tin with baking parchment.  

  2. Melt together the butter, sugar, golden syrup and treacle in a pan on a low heat, set aside to cool slightly.

  3. In a large bowl sift together the flour and ground ginger and add the crystallised ginger. Pour in the melted butter mixture and stir until evenly mixed.

  4. Next add the eggs and milk and beat together.

  5. Pour the mixture into the tin making sure it is level, then place in the oven for 50 minutes or until a skewer comes clean out of the centre of the cake. Set aside to cool then turn onto a wire rack to cool completely.

    This has become a firm favourite in my home. I omit the crystallised ginger (175g sugar is plenty!) and replace with another teaspoon of ground ginger . Delicious and very easy to make
