Delicious & moist, this recipe never fails to please and so easy to make.
10oz self raising flour.
8oz granulated sugar.
half pint of milk.
4oz marge / butter.
1tsp mixed spice.
pich of salt.
sift flour, sugar,ginger,mixed spice & salt together.
melt butter & treacle together.
warm milk & add bicarb.
add wet ingredients to flour mix, and stir well.
add egg & stir again.
place in a greased & lined tin & put into a pre-heated oven, 180c gas 4-5 and cook for approx 45-50 min, insert skewer or knife, if it comes out clean, I check after 30 min & cover top with greasproof paper to stop top from burning. Remove from oven when cooked & leave for 5 min before placing on a wire rack to cool. It will be moist & sticky next day but also delicious warm. The tin I use is 7.5 inches wide x 9.5 inches long & 3 inches in depth.
