This is our family's version of this classic Yorkshire cake - it's got a lovely warming ginger taste, plus the full richness that comes through from the addition of the milk.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F Grease a metal baking tray with a pastry (or paint) brush or butter paper; turn the baking tray upside down after greasing with organic sunflower oil to allow any excess oil to drain away.
  2. Melt together the butter, milk and golden syrup in a pan.
  3. Sieve the flours into a mixing bowl, then add the sugar, sultanas and ginger powder. Add the melted butter-syrup liquid and the beaten egg to the dry ingredients. Stir well.
  4. Pour into the greased baking tray and bake for about 40 minutes. Test for its readiness with a skewer or gently touching with a finger to see whether firm. Leave to cool and cut into squares.
