Gingerbread Loaf recipe question...Help!
August 21, 2016 11:01PM
I'm making this recipe, [albrown.co.nz]
but the measure for the golden syrup seems an awful lot, and I wonder if it should be 1/3 cup rather than 1 1/3. Anyone around on this beautiful afternoon who would have a clue? I'm wanting to take this to our friends who are having chemo at the moment.

OK, I googled and found a Ruth Pretty recipe that looks the same that uses the full amount of golden syrup, so I'll go with the 1 and 1/3 cup. Lots of sugar, but as weight isn't an issue I won't be too worried about it.

I saved the Ruth Pretty recipe a while ago and noticed the large amount of golden syrup. I will be really interested to know how the Al Brown or Ruth Pretty recipe turns out Griz.

I have been making the ruth pretty one for many years and always it always
turns out well. So I would definitely keep to same weights/measures.
Griz I prefer it a few days old with a slather of butter yum.....

Gingerbread is typically loaded with sugar.
I have made this Sticky Gingerbread many a time, it is great served as dessert with poached pears and cream, with blue cheese or as an afternoon tea loaf.

I am with you Helen, love Philips recipe, always a winner. Isn't it funny whenever I make gingerbread it always starts a wonderful conversation about warm memories of days past & how "oh I haven't had this in years"!
I love when food does that...

This recipe certainly made a dense and sticky loaf, mine did sink a little bit but possibly because I did the unthinkable and opened the door while they were cooking. I only got to test the nibbly bits that broke off as I packed them up for our friends but they seemed good and gingery. Might have to make some more for us!

Which recipe did you use in the end, Griz? The one in your original post or the link in Helen's post? I love sticky, moist gingerbread but have never made it. If I'm going to take the plunge, I want to get the right one.

I used the first recipe, well actually Ruth Pretty's version of that recipe, because Al Brown did the unthinkable and told me to use "standard loaf tins"...how stupid is that? I have four different sized loaf tins and they're all standard for the size they are! Ruth Pretty gave a measurement which meant I could work out which sizes to use to accommodate the mixture. Actually, Ruth Pretty's recipe was much better written than Al Browns!

Thank you Griz. Now I'm motivated to give it a go.
