  • 125g golden syrup
  • 125g black treacle
  • 250g self raising flour
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 21/2 tsp ground ginger

    1. grease and line a 3lb loaf tin with grease proof paper.

    3. sift the flour,bicarbonate and spices into a bowl.
    4. heat the milk with the sugar,stirring occasionally,until the sugar has dissolved completely.
    5. pour the milk and sugar mixture into the dry ingredients followed by the syrups and the egg-beat well to mix together then pour the batter into the prepared tin.
    6. bake for 45-50 minutes in the centre of the oven,until a skewer comes out clean.
    7. leave to cool slightly in the tin before turning out and cooling on a rack.
    8. wrap in greaseproof paper and then foil -this bread is better on the second and third days and lasts for five.
    9. pre-heat oven to 180c/gas 4.if using fan oven check after 35 minutes. also i couldn,t get hold of a 3lb loaf tin so i used a 2lb and a 1lb.

This is a really good recipe. I made this wrapped it in greaseproof paper then served the next day with custard. The outside was sticky and gooey, the inside was moist. It went down a treat with the family after Sunday lunch.
