      really easy to make, did'nt have any golden syrup so used tbsp of maple syrup and tsp of honey, only used half the amount of brown sugar (not enough left...ha), then equal portions of cinnamon raw suar, and vanilla sugar, and added a tbsp of orange zest for extra freakyness.
      all worked perfectly.
      thanks heaps bol
      a keeper for sure

      Very, very good. So easy to make and it came out perfect. My mixed spice was 1/4 teaspoon each of cinnamon, cloves, cardamon and ginger (a little more ginger can't hurt.......). It smelled wonderful while baking and was even nicer when cooled. I also liked the fact that the syrup was not overpowering, just a hint. All in all a gingerbread I will surely make again. Thanks for posting.

      Loved it! Gingerbread is one of my favourite things and this is an excellent loaf. I used honey instead of the golden syrup - different, but where was I going to find golden syrup here? My mixed spice included cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and allspice - lovely baking. Even better the next day after the flavours had mellowed together.
