Ingredients

  • 125 g of butter
  • 2/3 cup 160 ml of golden syrup
  • 3/4 cup 125 g of brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups 225 g of plain flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon of bicarb soda
  • 1 tablespoon of ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon of mixed spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 eggs

Instructions

  • Line a large loaf tin (approximately 10cm x 18cm) with baking paper and pre-heat your oven to 160 degrees fan-forced.
  • In a large saucepan, add the golden syrup, butter and brown sugar. Add the bicarbonate of soda and whisk over a medium low heat until the mixture is smooth, taking care not to let it boil. Remove the saucepan from the heat and let the mixture cool for 5 minutes.
  • Sift the flour, cinnamon, mixed spice and ginger over the melted ingredients and use a whisk to mix until smooth.
  • Add the eggs to the saucepan and stir until combined.
  • Pour the Gingerbread Loaf mixture into your prepared tin and lightly tap it on your bench to remove any air bubbles before gently smoothing the top with a spatula.
  • Place the Gingerbread Loaf into the oven and cook for 1 hour or until cooked through when tested with a skewer.
  • Carefully remove the loaf from the oven and allow it to cool in the tin for 10 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to completely cool.
