I've tried many recipes over the years, but this one is my personal favourite...a soft sticky,sweet cake that lasts for a few days without drying out...easy too

preheat oven to 160C, grease and line one 1lb or 2 1/2lb loaf tins

8oz soft brown sugar
2oz butter
1 tablespoon treacle (or syrup for a lighter sponge)
8 fluid oz milk

put the above ingredients in a pot and heat till sugar dissolved then leave to cool

in another bowl put...

8oz plain flour
2tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1tsp bicarbonate of soda

once sugar/milk mixture is cooled pour it into flour mix, mix thoroughly and pour into greased and lined tin/tins

bake for approx 1 hour or until when you stick a knife in the center it comes out clean

leave to cool slightly in the tins before tipping out and cooling completely on wire rack

Wonderful served as a thick slice with butter and a cup of tea...also great served with warm custard.
