Old Fashioned Gingerbread


220 grams softened butter
1 cup caster sugar
3 eggs
1 cup treacle
1 cup milk
3 cups plain flour
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 160C and grease a 23cm cake tin. Cream first two ingredients together until light and fluffy. Then add the eggs, one by one until well combined. Heat milk and treacle, cool slightly before adding to the butter mix. Sift dry ingredients together then fold into the wet mixture. Spoon the batter to the cake tin and bake for around 60 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean. Cool in the tin before truning the cake out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Recipe from the Baking Bible - if you're into ovens and flour, this cookbook is a must-have.


Those Who Stopped By

Scribe's Notes

This pitstop is where incoherent ramblings seem to have meaning, where things or events are thought of and assessed, where great things are documented and perhaps any not-so-good happenings are written down in attempt to be forgotten!

So from the diversely abstract to the intensely specific, it's off to making tracks, and it is here where it stops for a thought or two.
