Best Ever Easy Ginger Cake

I searched for 20 years to find the definitive ginger cake recipe - this is it! So easy to make and full of flavour it keeps well and can be frozen - iced or uniced. This cake is ideal for morning or afternoon tea. I also like to take it on picnics. If you prefer a lighter gingerbread, substitute golden syrup for the treacle. If you have a food processor this recipe is even quicker - simply process the dry ingredients until mixed then, with the motor running, pour the wet ingredients through the hopper. Process until well combined and pour into the lined tin.
