This is utterly, utterly gorgeous - Nigella recommends a lemon icing, but it really doesn't need it.

150g unsalted butter
125g dark muscovado sugar
200g golden syrup
200g black treacle
2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
250ml milk
2 large eggs, beaten
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda, dissolved in 2 tbs warm water
300g plain flour

1 roasting tin 30x20x5cm, greased and lined with parchment or foil

Preheat oven to 170C/gas 3

Melt the butter with the sugar, syrup, treacle, ginger and cinnamon.  Take off the heat, and add the milk, eggs and bicarb in water.

Place the flour in a bowl and pour in the liquid ingredients, beating well (it makes a very liquid batter, so don't be alarmed).  Pour into the tin and bake for about 1 hour.
