Re: Recipe wanted for sticky ginger buns

Hi Jaynie
This recipe used to belong to my Grandmother. I have always made it as a cake and never buns. I hope its what you are looking for


Sticky Ginger Cake

8oz soft brown sugar
6oz butter
12oz golden syrup or treacle
1lb self raising flour
1 1/2 tspn ground ginger
1 egg
1/2 pt milk
3oz sultanas(optional)
If using treacle replace the brown sugar with caster sugar

Melt butter,sugar and syrup in a pan over a low heat stir until the grainy feeling goes.
Allow to cool
In a large bowl sift the flour with the ginger and make a well in the center, and add the butter/sugar mix, fold in until combined
Mix together the egg and the milk and add this to the cake mix, have a little patience here and keep stirring and gradually the milk will mix in leaving you with quite a sloppy cake mix.

This mix makes one 8" round cake and one 2lb loaf cake or 1 x 9 1/2" round cake.
Bake at 160C for about 1 - 1 1/4 hours.
Leave in the tin for 15 minutes and then cool as usual on a wire rack.

Re: Recipe wanted for sticky ginger buns

Stu, your kidding right, as if a ginger cake would last that long anywhere.... maybe if I put it in an old biscuit tin & taped it shut & hid it behind the potato box at the bottom of the pantry? Even them i think Oh or son would find it...

How are you? Havent "spoken" to you in ages!

Things here are good... Nakita is in 1st class now & Clayton started preschool this year, just 1 day a week, but still, my baby is growing up!
