Spiced Ginger Cake

I was looking through my old blog trying to find this recipe a while back.  One from the archives...

I loosely followed a recipe from Waitrose.


225g treacle
2.5 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp milk
125g soft dark brown sugar
125g butter (softened)
2 eggs, beaten
1 tsp baking powder
pinch salt


Get your oven on to 175, Gas mark 3 and then grease a small square tin (or a dish if you can't find your tin like me...) and then line the base of the tin with grease proof paper.

Pour the milk and the treacle in small saucepan and melt treacle into milk over light heat.  When that's done take off the heat and add the baking powder.

Cream together the butter and sugar, then gradually add the egg.

Mix in the treacle mixture from the pan to the butter, egg and sugar and then sieve in the flour, ginger and salt.

Pour into your greased tin and bake in the oven for 45 mins.
