We have a family recipe book from the 1800s which I have been writing up and testing recipes from. It is from my Nanny Audrey’s side of the family and has lots of great cake and biscuit recipes in, not forgetting the Christmas Pudding recipe which I will put up in time for Stir Up Sunday!
This is the basic recipe for
‘Aunt Emmas Gingerbread Cake’:
- ½ lb butter
- 1 cup plain flour
- ½ oz ground ginger
- 1 lb treacle
- Pinch of salt
- 1 dessert-spoon baking powder
Mix all ingredients together then bake at 180’c for 1 hour and a half.
A very easy and tasty recipe, can be done in a pound loaf tin. Do leave comments if you would like to have more recipes from this collection put up : )
