Life and Thyme!

Bakes like Berry!

I was a little disappointed that Richard didn’t win the Bake Off last night but you are only as good as your last bake! Fortunately for me the next ginger recipe I tried from 100 Sweet Treats and Puds by Mary Berry was a success.

Ginger bread Traybake

Strange when I think about it that although I had three strapping sons I never made a tray bake before. Just ordinary sized cakes. This one was perfect for what I had in mind at the weekend.

Oven 160C or gas 3. 30x23cm tin

Heat together gently 10 0z golden syrup, 10 oz black treacle,8 oz light brown sugar, 8 oz butter until blended,do not boil

Remove from heat and stir in 1lb SR flour, 1 level tsp of ground ginger.

Add 4 large beaten eggs and 4 tbsp milk

Pour into tin and bake for 45-50 mins

When cool ice with glace icing made up of 8oz icing sugar and 2 tbsp water ( I needed more water than that)

Sprinkle on 2 oz chopped stem ginger

It was nice enough to take to share for this

  1. Sounds good but that recipe must make a lot!

  2. Tonight I will be baking a sticky toffee cake with apple… to cheer up a meeting I have to go to tomorrow.
    I too thought Richard would win, but perhaps the pressure finally got to him.

    • Your sticky toffee cake sounds really tasty, please can I come to your meeting? Poor Richard , all for the lack of knowing how to make a lemon tart, and using childlike icing.

  3. Hi Cathy…lovely to meet you today, just been looking through your lovely blog…just love it ! been drooling over those lovely plum cakes and bakes (yes, Richard was robbed on Bake Off!!…) I have booked the Poppy felt class for the 6th Nov, will you be coming?. I showed my neighbour the robin we made this morning, she fussed over it so much I said I would make her one.!. I think there is a new obsession brewing…I been on ‘World of Wool’ website already!!…hope to see you again – happy crafting, Jan.x

    • Hi Jan, It was lovely to meet you too this morning. Welcome to Ryedale! I’d love to do the poppy on 6 November, just need to wait to see what else is happening here first. Reminds me I need to go over to world of wool! Your robin was gorgeous, mine still looks forlorn!

  4. It looks delicious! We are big ginger fans here so I think I’ll have to make this 🙂

  5. I was just wondering what to bake this weekend. We’ve had banana bread 2 weekends running so time for a change.
