8oz plain flour.
1 pinch of salt.
2 teaspoons of ground ginger.
Half a teaspoon of ground cinnamon.
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda.
8oz of medium oatmeal.
6oz black treacle.
4oz brown sugar (I used white and it turned out fine).
1 large egg.
1/4 of a pint of milk.
1. Set your oven to Gas Mark 4.
2. Put all of the above in a bowl and mix together.
|The flour, salt, ginger, cinnamon, bicarbonate of soda and oatmeal combined.|
|The black treacle, butter and sugar melted together.|
|Please note, only use one egg. I did but because mine were free range, it had a double yolk.|
|This is what it looks like when you've given it a good mix together.|
7. Cook your mixture on Gas Mark 4 for 75 minutes, turning in the middle. Remove it after this time if it is firm to the touch.
Now's the spoiler: When your cake is cool, wrap it in tin foil and leave to 'mature' for one week. Then, enjoy! :)
