Description

Gooey, sticky, delicious gingerbread.

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 2 Tablespoons Warm Water
  • ⅔ cups Butter
  • 4-½ ounces, weight Dark Brown Sugar
  • 7 ounces, weight Golden Syrup
  • 7 ounces, weight Molasses
  • 2 teaspoons Ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon Allspice
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 1 cup Full Fat Milk
  • 2 whole Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 3 cups Unbleached All-purpose Flour

Preparation

Dissolve the baking soda into the warm water and set aside.

Preheat oven to 325F. Line two loaf pans with parchment paper.

In a saucepan over a low heat, mix together and melt the butter, sugar, golden syrup, molasses and spices.

Take off the heat and add the milks, eggs and dissolved baking soda along with its water.

Measure the flour into a bowl and pour in the liquid ingredients, beating until well mixed. The batter will be very liquid, but don’t worry as that is what will make it sticky later.

Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pans and bake for around 45 minutes, until risen and firm on top. Try not to overcook, it will carry on cooking as it cools.

Transfer the tin to a wire rack and let it cool in the tin.

Is Golden Syrup High Fructose Corn Syrup? That’s one of those things I don’t cook with.

Has anyone reduced the sugar in this recipe? I often find that desserts are too sugary and play around with reducing the sweetness.

Hey guys, sorry I didn’t reply sooner. Golden Syrup is British, but you should be able to find it at Whole Foods or in big grocery stores with an international section. If not then you can probably substitute with corn syrup although it isn’t quite the same. Golden syrup has the same consistancy and colour as honey but tastes more like slightly burned/browned sugar.

I found golden syrup at Cost Plus World Market–been wondering what to do with it—ahhhhaaa! I’m going to try this yummy one tomorrow.

Hello – I may try to make this, as well. Sounds yummy – anything gooey has my immediate attention. I searched golden syrup & it sounds like a thick corn syrup. Evidently, you can substitute equal parts corn syrup & molasses; or, a 2 parts corn syrup to one part molasses mixture; or just plain old corn syrup, if you don’t like the taste of molasses (I love molasses so I’ll probably go 50/50). But 14 ounces of syrup? No wonder it’s sticky! :)
