One of my favorite cake is ginger bread!
I actually fell in love with this cake when I was a student in England.
I was staying with English family and so as my friend.
And her landlady was into cooking, always welcome with her cakes etc.
Then one day when I visited my friend,
she brought her gingerbread,
OMG! That was AMAZING!!
I asked her recipe and after that she always gives me some recipes,
moreover inspiration as a mum.
We are still friends since then even after I came back to Japan.
This is not her recipe but always reminds of her.
55g dark brown sugar
110g golden syrup
1/4 tbsp mixed spice
1/2 tbsp ginger
Prepare the baking tin or loaf tin.
Preheat the oven to 180c.
Put butter, sugar, syrup, treacle in a pan and heat gently until they melt,
remove from the heat and cool a little bit.
Whisk eggs with milk and mix with butter mixture.
Shift dry ingredients into butter mixture and mix well.
Pour it into the prepared tin and bake for about 40minutes in the preheated oven.
Skewer to check and leave it in the tin till cool.
