Just perfect for a sunny February afternoon with a cup of tea (or a cold February afternoon with a mug of hot chocolate…)
4 oz (125g) butter
4 oz (125g) brown sugar
8 oz (225g) golden syrup
¼ pint (150 ml) milk
1 egg, beaten
8 oz (225g) plain flour
1 tsp bicarb soda
3-4 tsp ground ginger
Grease and line an 18cm square cake tin.
Melt butter, sugar, syrup and milk in a pan, stirring all the while, then allow to cool slightly.
Add the beaten egg and the butter/sugar mixture to the dry ingredients, mix well, then beat.
Pour into the tin and bake at 150 degrees C (gas mark 2) for about an hour.
Cool on a rack and enjoy.
