125 g (4 oz) soft butter or margarine, plus extra for greasing
125 g (4 oz) caster sugar
125 g (4 oz) self-raising flour
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
single cream or custard, to serve
Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F), Gas Mark 4, and grease an ovenproof dish. Pour the golden syrup into the bottom of the dish.
Place all of the remaining ingredients in a bowl and beat until smooth, then pour it over the golden syrup. Smooth with a spatula to make an even layer, then cook in the preheated oven for 20–25 minutes, until risen and golden.
