Just the smell of this gingerbread loaf whilst it's baking is redolent of when I was a little girl and staying at my grandparent's old cottage..........and, it is so easy to make. Plus, there are not many ingredients to it and yet, it is the recipe I always turn to when I feel like real old-fashioned sticky gingerbread! My grandmother used to serve it in thick slices with butter; it nearly always appeared on the tea table at least once a week! This is also wonderful served up as a Pudding type cake, warm with custard or cream, delicious! Oh yes, this gingerbread only contains 2 ounces of fat in it, making it low fat as well as very tasty!
