A deliciously moist never-fail loaf. I bake this loaf before bed and leave it in the cooling oven overnight. NO hard crusts!

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour an 8x4 inch loaf pan.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. All done! Now take a photo, rate it, and share your accomplishments!

Thank you for a delicious and moist recipe that made my house smell wonderful while it was baking. For those of you asking questions about golden syrup: Golden syrup, like molasses, is a product of the process of refining sugar. It is simply sugar cane juice that has been boiled down. 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. This recipe is unlikely to taste as good without the use of honest-to-goodness golden syrup, but if you must, you can try substituting it with 2 parts light corn syrup and 1 part molasses or equal parts of honey and light corn syrup. You can purchase Lyles Golden Syrup on Amazon.com if you can't find it in local stores. Hope this helps.

Very moist loaf. Really good recipe. I used a lemon sauce for the cut slices. I used corn syrup for the golden syrup because I wasn't sure what golden syrup is either. I also added 1/2 tsp of pumpkin spice and 3 tsp of cinnamon sugar mixture.

In order to help when looking for the ingredients, golden syrup is the English reference to molasses.
