“A deliciously moist never-fail loaf. I bake this loaf before bed and leave it in the cooling oven overnight. NO hard crusts!” - by Mandy
Original recipe yields 1 - 8x4 inch loaf
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
- In a small saucepan, combine the butter, sugar, golden syrup, and milk. Bring to a boil, then remove from heat, and set aside. Sift the flour, baking soda, ginger, and allspice into a large bowl. Stir in the boiled mixture until just blended. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
- Turn down the oven to 325 degrees F (160 degrees C), and bake for 1 hour, or until the top of the loaf springs back when lightly touched.

It has the consistency of corn syrup, but a golden color and a taste different from either light or dark corn syrup, and also substantially different from its cousin, molasses.

You can purchase Lyles Golden Syrup on Amazon.com if you can't find it in local stores. Hope this helps."

I did use two tablespoons of ginger instead of th..." See moree recommended one, but that was the only change I made to the recipe. It rose beautifully in the bread pan and makes a fine big loaf. I won't look any farther than this for a gingerbread recipe. This is first-rate!!"
