    Serves: 8 

    • 100g dark brown soft sugar
    • 200g butter or margarine, softened
    • 2 eggs
    • 2 tablespoons golden syrup
    • 200g self raising flour

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3.
    2. Cream together the butter and brown sugar.
    3. Whisk together the eggs and golden syrup and add to the sugar-butter mix.
    4. Fold in the flour, and mix everything really well till it has a smooth consistency.
    5. Pour the mix into a small greased tray bake tin. (Or you could make fairy cakes or a simple round cake with it. You decide!) Sprinkle the top with a little extra brown sugar.
    6. Put it in the preheated oven, for around half an hour, or when a knife, stuck into the middle of the cake, comes out clean.
    7. Enjoy!
