100gm Butter 

90g Brown sugar 

1 tsp Vanilla Extract 

1 Whole Egg 

60ml Molasses 

1 3/4 cup Plain Flour 

1 tsp Baking Powder 

0.5tsp Baking Soda 

1tsp Ginger 

1.2 tsp Cinammon 

1/2 cup Milk 

1/4 cup Yogurt 


1.Preheat oven to 180 C.  Grease and line a 9 x 5 inch rectangular loaf pan with baking or parchment paper.

2.In a large mixing bowl, add butter and sugar. Beat with an electric mixer on medium speed until smooth and creamy.  Add vanilla, egg and molasses. Beat briefly until combined. Don’t worry if the batter goes a little lumpy.

3.Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger and cinnamon. Start to beat on a low speed. Slowly add milk and yoghurt and continue to beat until cake batter is thick and creamy.

4.Pour cake batter into prepared pan. Bake in the oven for approximately 40-45 minutes* or until a skewer inserted in the middle comes out clean.

*Check your loaf at 40 minutes. If it starts to look very brown on the outside but isn’t yet cooked on the inside, cover with aluminium foil and keep baking – checking every 5 minutes.

NB Use Egg substitute for allergies
