Gingerbread cake

Week 15, session 2

This is an example of the melted method. Black treacle, golden syrup, butter, and soft brown sugar were melted together in a saucepan which was, once cooled, added to the eggs and dry ingredients.

It’s easy to do this method and smells incredible whilst doing it and the result was a spicy, light and fluffy sponge. A winner!

Some of this cake was eaten at my Dad’s birthday in the garden party but there was some left over which I heated for a few seconds in the microwave and served with vanilla ice cream – really good!
