Sticky Gingerbread loaf...

My Grandmother wasn't a big fan of making dinners but one thing she always insisted on were homemade cakes for teatime. This gingerbread recipe was adapted from an old one of hers and a favourite of mine also. It is a  fairly easy one to follow and I can guarantee a lovely smell will waft from your oven while it is baking...

225g of plain flour
125g butter
2 eggs
4 tbsp of treacle
1 tsp ground ginger
2 tbsp of warm milk

Line a 21b loaf tin and preheat the oven to160c. Beat butter until soft. Add eggs,sugar and treacle. Blend until well mixed.
Stir in ginger and flour.
Add the warm milk and mix all the ingredients together until well blended.
Put in cake tin and bake in the oven for about 1 hour until an inserted skewer comes out clean.
Cool on a wire rack and wrap in greaseproof paper to keep it moist and sticky.

A lovely treat for an afternoon cup of tea especially when you add butter or a drizzle of honey!!
