Cherry and Ginger Loaf - Recipe


From one sweet cherry to another (if you have no idea what I'm taking about see previous post!). The other morning I had an hour or so to spare (actually - read that as 'I chose to ignore the huge ironing pile') so decided to try out my new Breville hand mixer (£11.99 on offer at Sainsburys - which I thought was a bargain!) ... I had some cherries and ginger to use up (don't we all on occasion) so made a Cherry and Ginger Loaf type thing  ...

6oz/180g self raising flour
4oz/125g butter/marg
1 egg
3oz/90g sugar
3oz/90g cherries
2 oz/60g crystallised ginger (chopped fairly finely)
a few tablespoons of milk

I mixed up the flour, butter, egg and sugar with enough milk to give me a good 'cake' consistency, added the cherries and ginger, piled it all into my ceramic loaf dish (which measures 21cm/13cm) ...

... and baked on 180 deg (conventional oven - the fan in ours has broken) - think this is Gas 4 (but don't quote me on that!) for 55 minutes - you could get away with 50 mins if you don't like too crusty a top  ...

Then all you have to do is make a huge cuppa and dig in! Unfortunately it's very moreish so some restraint has to be exercised ... good  luck with that!
