Makes 16 Slices
Gilchesters Organics Wholemeal flour
Soft dark brown sugar
Bicarbonate of soda
Pre-heat the oven to 140C. Weigh the treacle, syrup and butter in a medium pan and place over a medium heat until melted together, being careful not to let it boil. Take off the heat. Generously grease a 22cm square baking tin.
Combine the flour, oatmeal, spices, sugar, salt and bicarb in a large mixing bowl, then pour in the treacle mixture stirring to combine. Beat the egg with the milk then beat into the batter until its just loose enough to pour into the tin.
Bake for about an hour and a half until its just firm in the centre and when pressed, springs back. Allow to cool in the tin for at least 30 minutes, then turn out, slics and either serve warn or store in a tin for up to 3 weeks, the texture will keep improving.
