Ingredients

  • 220g unsalted butter, softened
  • 365g self-raising flour
  • 200g muscovado sugar
  • 50g black treacle
  • 150g golden syrup
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 300ml milk
  • 2 balls stem ginger in syrup, finely chopped, plus 50ml of the syrup
  • 1 tsp fine sea salt
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • small handful of crystallised ginger pieces, chopped, to decorate

For the white chocolate icing

  • 30ml milk
  • 160g icing sugar, sieved
  • 150g white chocolate, chopped

Instructions

  • Step 1: Preheat your oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4. In a separate pan, melt 1 tablespoon of butter before adding in 1/2 tablespoon of flour to make a thick paste. Paint the wet paste onto the inner sides of a 9-inch bundt tin. Place the butter, sugar, treacle and golden syrup in another pan over a medium heat and stir until all the 'ingredients' have combined. Leave to cool slightly.
  • Step 2: Place the mixture in a bowl and gently stir in the eggs and milk. Mix in the stem ginger, rest of the flour, salt, ground ginger, cinnamon and baking powder. Gently pour it into the prepared tin and bake for 40-45 minutes or until it springs back when touched. Let it cool for 10 minutes in the tin, then take out and place on a wire rack to fully cool.
  • Step 3: In a bowl, combine the milk, ginger syrup and icing sugar and mix until smooth. Melt the chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl in intervals of 1 minute. Let the chocolate cool before combining it with the milk mixture. Spread the icing on the cake and top it off with crystallised ginger pieces.
