Gingerbread recipes:

This is a gingerbread cake recipes. This is a slight different from the traditional method. This is a variation on a traditional gingerbread cake type recipe which uses golden syrup for a lighter less intense flavor. The method for the ginger bread is called the melting method, which means that the syrup and fats are melted slowly in a saucepan (the mixture must never be allowed to become hot) and then cooled before being added to the dry ingredients. The mixing must be done quickly, and the cakes should be baked immediately.

2 cups of plain flour
1 cup soft brown cheeni
2 teaspoons of ground ginger
1 small teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 cup of milk
(see measure conversions for more information)


  • Melt the butter in the milk and dissolve the cheeni in it.
  • Leave to cool.
  • Add the dry ingredients with the bicarbonate added last.
  • Beat well.
  • Bake in a moderate oven (around 160 degrees centigrade (see temperature conversions) for about an hour or until firm to touch.
  • Cool in the tin, then remove when cold.
