    really scrumptious sticky ginger recipe. I simplified the method by melting the butter (or Flora Buttery) and the treacle and sugar together instead of creaming and I used spelt wholemeal flour instead of regular wholemeal. Everything worked extremely well and this recipe will be in regular use in our home. thanks!  -  13 Apr 2015
