Sieve together into a bowl:

6oz plain flour
1 level dessertspoon ground ginger
1.5 level teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 level teaspoon bicarbonate of soda


I egg
3 level tablespoons liquid honey
1 level tablespoon treacle
4 oz sugar
4 oz soft butter or margarine
¼ pint of warm water


Gradually stir the liquid into the dry ingredients. The mix will become very runny.

Pour all into a greased / lined 2 lb loaf tin and bake at 150C for 1hour 30 mins.

If wished, a few previously soaked sultanas or finely chopped pieces of crystallised ginger can be added part-way through baking.  If added too soon, they tend to sink, as the mix is so liquid.
