  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
  • 180g butter, softened
  • 200g dark brown soft sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 170g black treacle
  • 2 tbsp whole milk
  • 100g stem ginger, from a jar (approx. 6 balls), chopped

  • 100g icing sugar
  • 1 lemon, juiced

  • METHOD

     

    1. 1. Preheat your oven to 180C, and generously butter and flour your bundt tin or use a non-stick baking spray.
    2. 2. Begin by sifting together the flour, spices, baking powder and bicarbonate of soda into a bowl.
    3. 3. Add the butter and soft brown sugar to the bowl of your Kenwood Chef kitchen machine, fitted with the K beater. Set the machine to a medium speed for 5 minutes, beating the butter and sugar until smooth, pale and creamy.
    4. 4. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating between each addition. Add the treacle and milk and beat again. Add the sifted together dry ingredients and mix into the batter at a low speed. Finally add the chopped ginger and syrup, mixing on a low speed until just combined. Show head raised with mixture on.
    5. 5. Pour the batter into the prepared tin, and tap the tin sharply on the surface, to get rid of any air bubbles.
    6. 6. Bake in the prepared oven for 45mins-1hr, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean.
    7. 7. Remove from the oven and cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning out onto a cooling rack.
    8. 8. When completely cool, stir together the icing sugar with the lemon juice, and drizzle over the cake as desired. Finally, scatter over the pomegranate seeds.
