This classic dark brown ginger cake is made from oats. In the past, it was often served with a seasonal fruit compote. The proper stuff, like this, should be extra sticky.
Preheat the oven to 150°C (130°C fan, gas mark 2). Grease and line a 25cm square tin.
Mix all the dry ingredients together. Add the melted butter and treacle, then the milk and beaten egg. Stir well and pour into a lined tin.
Bake for about 1 hour 45 minutes, or until you insert a skewer into the cake and it comes out clean.

I made this exactly as the recipe. It wasn’t particularly sticky, but I admit we started eating it straight out of the oven. I’m sure if you followed directions as in the previous review it would become so. It was a very easy cake to make, and had a lovely flavour.

easy to make, i swap the porridge oats for medium oatmeal, and wrap it up for a few days before eating as the taste develops and it gets stickier and yummier.
