Christmas Bakes: Becs' Ginger Loaf

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp mixed spice
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 + 1/3 cup golden syrup
  • 225g butter (roughly diced)
  • 2 eggs (lightly beaten)
  • 250ml (1 cup) milk
  • Nuts for topping (optional)

Preheat the oven to 150°C, and grease and line the base of an 11x30cm loaf tin

Sift dry ingredients together - flour, brown sugar, baking soda, baking powder, ginger, mixed spice, nutmeg and cinnamon.

Melt golden syrup with butter in a small saucepan. Add the golden syrup mixture to the dry ingredients, followed by eggs and milk. Combine well, using a whisk (note: this is a very wet mix).

Pour mix into the prepared tin (top with nuts if you like). Cook in loaf tin for 1 hour 10 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean. When cooked, leave in the tin to cool for 30 minutes or more before turning out. Enjoy warm or cold.
