My Nan, okay not physically, as my beloved Nan passed away 3 years ago, it has been an endeavor of mine to wade through her precious handwritten recipe book and pick out some classic’s to recreate.
1/4 c (50g/4 tbsp) butter
1 tbsp golden syrup (a good kiwi staple in USA you can find it in specialty gourmet stores especially British inspired ones)
1/2 c brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp allspice
1 tsp baking soda
3/4 c milk.
Heat oven to 375F. Grease a 9 x 3 loaf pan.
Melt butter and golden syrup together, add egg and sugar, whisk well. Then add all the dry ingredients, except baking soda). Mix together (it will be quite stiff), combine the baking soda and milk together then add into the other ingredients. Pour into loaf pan and bake 30-40 mins.
She’s already given me these gems, which if you haven’t tried you should!
I’m still wading my way through the rest. Thanks Nan, for this and everything else you gave me.
