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
Here it is
here’s the real start of the show!
