Just the best Gingerbread loaf

I’ve been making this quite a bit recently and had lots of very complimentary comments about it. If you like gingerbread at all, just try it out, you’ll love it. Makes a lovely, moist gingerbread loaf, very easy to do.


175g Unsalted butter
200g soft brown sugar (can use caster)
3 tablespoons golden syrup
250ml milk
250g plain flour
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon (can use allspice here)
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C / Gas 4. Grease and flour a 20x10cm loaf tin.
  2. In a small saucepan, melt the the butter, and add the sugar, golden syrup and milk. Bring to the boil, then remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. Sieve the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and cinnamon into a large bowl. Stir in the boiled mixture until just blended.
  4. Pour the batter into the prepared tin.
  5. Turn down the oven to 160°C / Gas 2 1/2 and bake for one hour or until the top of the loaf springs back when lightly touched.
That’s it, very simple. Enjoy!
