Ingredients

  • For the gingerbread
  • 150g unsalted butter
  • 125g dark muscovado sugar
  • 150g treacle
  • 200g golden syrup
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp bicarb soda
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 250ml milk
  • 300g plain flour

  • For the icing
  • 200g icing sugar
  • 1-2 tbsp lemon juice

Method

For the gingerbread: Preheat oven to 180C. Grease and line a slice tin about 22cm x 32cm with baking paper.

Place butter, sugar, treacle, syrup, ginger and cinnamon in a medium-sized saucepan and heat until butter is melted and all ingredients are incorporated.

Remove from heat and stir in bicarb soda.

Add eggs and milk and mix well.

Pour mixture into flour and stir well until there are no lumps.

Pour mixture into prepared tin and bake for about 35 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean when tested.

Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.

For the icing: Sift icing sugar and mix with the lemon juice until the icing is a spreadable consistency. Spread over cooled slice.
