gingerbread cake – zázvorová buchta

Dead easy gingerbread cake, soft and sticky and wonderful in every way. Honestly love this. You’ll need: 100g golden syrup, 100g black treacle, 75g unsalted butter, 75g brown sugar, 150g plain flour, 1/2 tsp mixed spice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1 tsp ginger, 1 egg, 75ml milk, grated zest of one orange (or lemon if you prefer) 1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda, and about 75g chopped crystallized stem ginger.


In a small saucepan, heat the syrup, treacle, butter and sugar and stir them together until the butter melts and ingredients combine. Put this to one side and let it cool down a bit. Preheat your oven to 170 degrees c and grease a 1 litre loaf tin. Line the bottom and long sides with greaseproof paper. Put the flour and spices together in a bowl, make a well in the middle and pour in the treacle gloop. Add in the egg, milk and orange/lemon zest and beat with a wooden spoon until it’s all combined.

Dissolve the bicarbonate of soda in one tablespoon hot water and add to the mixture, along with chopped ginger, and stir until all mixed in. Pour the mixture into your loaf tin and pop it in the oven for 45 mins. Once it’s done, wrap it in a tea towel and let it cool on a cooling rack. If you want, poke holes in the top with a fork and drizzle with lemon-juice-and-icing-sugar icing.

Eat it. Don’t share.


Tohle je klasický anglický recept na zázvorovou buchtu.

Syroviny: 100g zlatýho sirupu, 100g melasa, 75g másla, 75g měkkýho hnědýho cukr,u 150g mouky,  1 lžička skořice, 1 lžička zázvoru, 1 vejce, 75ml mléka, kůru z jednoho citronu, 0.5 lžičky jedlé sody.

Hřejeme spolu sirup, melasa, máslo a cukr dokud nejsou dostatečně kombinované. Tohle dáme na stranu vychládnout. Do míse dáme mouku a koření, a přidáme mléko, vejce, citronovou kůru, a chladnou sirupovou smísy. Všechno smícháme dokud není kombinované. Jedlou sodu rozpustíme v 1 lžice horké vody, a tohle přidáme do misce, a znovu smícháme. Nalijeme do formy, a šoupneme do trouby. Necháme péct 45 minut 170 stupnů c.
