Denyse’s Very Simple Ginger Cake


How to make this recipe

  • Heat oven to 150C (300F or gas mark 2)
  • Gently heat oil or butter in saucepan, add treacle, and sugar
  • When all ingredients melted, leave to cool. Meanwhile, sieve all dry ingredients into a large mixing bowl
  • Make a well in the centre and pour treacle mix and warmed milk (reserving a little for the bicarbonate of soda
  • Mix well then add the beaten eggs and bicarbonate of soda. Stir and pour into a lined loaf tin
  • Bake for approx 75mins (worth putting baking paper over loaf halfway through baking process to avoid burnt edges
  • When cooked leave in tin to cool, but drizzle ginger syrup over the top so that it steeps into the cake
  • Once cooled, wrap in tin foil or airtight container, best eaten the next day if can wait that long!
