Sticky Gingercake – Bake of the Week

ginger cake gingerbread recipe

Well, we’re back from a fantastic time at Center Parcs. Lots more about that to follow but for now I want to share my latest Bake of the Week entry.

I make this Sticky Gingercake a lot when we are going somewhere for a few days – It lasts really well and the stickiness gets even better if you can leave it alone in tin foil for about 3 days. I tend to make double so we have some to eat while the rest is ‘improving’.

Sticky Ginger Cake

Meal type Dessert, Lunch, Snack
Misc Child Friendly, Freezable, Pre-preparable, Serve Cold

Ingredients

  • 8oz Butter
  • 8oz Soft Light Brown Sugar
  • 6oz treacle (I tend to just pour it in and guess - these are rough estimates)
  • 8oz Golden Syrup (Again just pour it in over the sugar and butter)
  • 4 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 7oz plain flour
  • 2oz porridge oats
  • 2 Large eggs (whisked)
  • 1/2 pint Milk (I use Semi Skimmed)

Directions

Preheat the oven to 160C and line a 10" square tin (not a loose bottomed one)
Melt the butter, sugar, treacle, syrup and ginger in a pan, slowly - When melted, remove from the heat and allow to cool
In a large bowl, add the flour and oats. Make a well in the middle.
Gradually add the eggs and then the cooled butter/syrup mixture - keep mixing together.
Whilst still mixing, add the milk.
When all combined, pour into the tin (it will be a pourable consistency) and bake for 45-55 minutes
A needle should come out clear and the cake should be fairly crisp on the top. Enjoy!

Lovely to see that there was an entry for the first ever week of Bake of the Week – Kirsty from Hijacked by Twins entered the richest looking St Patrick’s Chocolate & Guinness Cake.

    I love ginger cake, and the stickier the better. Like you say the problem would be letting it improve, without eating it. I’ll have to add this to my recipe book! #TastyTuesdays

      Hiya – Hope you enjoy it when you bake it. Soon you will never leave the house with some wrapped in tin foil!

    Wow this looks incredible, I could gobble it right up now! Ginger cake should not just be reserved for the Autumn (reminds me of bonfire night) …and childhood, I really must make it. Thanks so much for linking up to #tastytuesdays x
