Tossing up to either go for a run/shuffle or clean the oven before I start the day properly. Either way, I'll need a reward so I've made Sticky Pear Gingerbread. Should you wish to ruin all the good work brought about by exercise or give your oven walls an extra layer of neglect, here's the recipe:
1/3 cup treacle
1/3 cup golden syrup
2/3 cup brown sugar
1-2/3 cup flour
4 tsps baking powder
1 tsp bicarb soda
1 tbsp ground ginger
1-1/4 cups milk
2 large or 3 small pears, peeled, cored & diced
- Pre-heat oven at 170C (bit lower if fan-forced).
- Heat butter, treacle, golden syrup & sugar until butter is melted and sugar dissolved. Leave to cool for 5 minutes.
- Sift flour, baking powder, bicarb soda and ground ginger into a bowl and whisk in treacle mixutre, egg and milk. Fold in pears.
- Pour into a square or loaf tin and bake for 60-75mins, depending on choice of tin. Cake is cooked when skewer comes out clean.
