PREP 5 mins
COOK 20 mins

You Need: 

125g butter
200ml milk (any type)
2 eggs (any size) - beaten
100g chopped preserved or glacé ginger (optional)
225g black treacle or molasses
150g sugar (brown sugar is best)
225g self-raising flour, or use 225g plain flour plus 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
Whipped cream or ice cream to serve


Preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3 and grease and line a loaf tin                
Mix the flour (and bicarbonate of soda, if using) with the STICKY GINGERBREAD BLEND and a pinch of salt                
Heat the butter with the black treacle and sugar, stirring regularly, for 5 minutes or until the butter has melted and the sugar has dissolved                
Stir the melted butter mixture into the spiced flour with the chopped preserved ginger (if using)                
Stir in the beaten eggs and milk until you have a smooth, runny mixture                
Pour the mixture into the lined loaf tin and bake for 45 minutes or until the top is slightly cracked and a knife inserted into the centre comes out clean (cover with foil if the top is browning before the centre is cooked through)                
Leave to cool then serve in slices with a spoonful of whipped cream or ice cream (store the remaining gingerbread in an airtight tin as the flavour and texture will improve over time)

Absolutely delicious - I was a little skeptical as my normal recipe uses a treacle/golden syrup blend and I wondered if the pure treacle might be a bit much but I shouldn't have worried! The hint of chilli just enhances the warmth of the ginger and it goes wonderfully sticky after a day or two.

We're so pleased to hear you enjoyed our sticky gingerbread recipe! It was definitely a firm favourite here at Spicery HQ!


First free sample with first kit and really pleased with results . Deliciously sticky moist light ginger cake . Made some of recipe as 24 mini loaves then put rest in loaf tin . The depth of spicing was perfect and has been much enjoyed by all who have tasted !

Yum! It's great to hear you enjoyed this fragrant gingerbread loaf - it's a big hit here at Spicery HQ too!


Super yummy cake. Lots of family members, even those that don't particularly like ginger loved this cake. I used the whole free sample, not sure if I was supposed to as I now read, one portion!!!!! However was so so tasty. Definitely making again, just hope it lasts longer before all eaten and no time to get sticky ........

It's great to hear that everyone enjoyed this delicious ginger cake, happy spicing!


Got this blend as a free sample and made the cake using the recipe card! Its amazing, just like a sticky toffee pudding but better! We've bought the blend again as we loved it so much!

We have to agree this moreish gingerbread loaf is absolutely marvellous!


Delicious on a frosty weekend and super easy to make: made by my son, Charlie!

Well done, Charlie! The cake looks absolutely fantastic and we bet the kitchen smelled amazing with the fragrance of this rich cake!


Wow, finally got to use the free sample from October. This is delish. I will definitely be ordering more. Just what I need on hand for the busy run up to christmas. Coffee and cake all the way. Thank you guys. This is such a tasty winter warmer

That cake looks delicious! Definitely a perfect match with a cup of coffee!


This is fantastic. So happy to receive this sample. Moist, decadent, but also full of iron-rich molasses! On the favourites list, thumbs up.
