This gingerbread is well-flavoured and incredibly moist. For a loaf with soft crusts, bake in the evening and allow the loaf to cool in the oven overnight. Enjoy for afternoon tea or elevenses.
help pls -made this buy top gets hard so have to take out of oven which means inside is VERY heavy-even uncooked properly. - 03 Mar 2013
oh crikey, this was awesome! Loved it. Yum I used half butter half 'clover' and cinnamon instead of allspice as I had no allspice. Felt really guilty using so much syrup but what the hey! However when I mixed ingredients it all went very lumpy! Never mind, I just pushed it the mixture through a seive and it came out lovely and smooth. I cooked for an extra 10 mins and although it didn't smell when I baked the cake it did when I cut it. It was moist - very moist - and sticky and gorgeous. Hubby had a thick slice with butter then I iced it with a thick layer of icing sugar - just like I had at school. Oh boy. - 01 Sep 2011
