About the bake

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.

  2. Step 2:

    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.
