Orange & ginger tea bread


  • Preheat oven to 180°C fan forced (200°C normal).
  • Line a lightly oiled loaf tin with baking paper.
  • Beat the brown sugar with the golden syrup, ground ginger, crème fraiche, orange zest and eggs until well combined. Then add the cooled melted butter and stir until well incorporated. Add the flour and baking powder, and mix until smooth using a wooden spoon, before folding in the crystalised ginger.
  • Transfer the dough to the tin and cook in the oven for about 1 hour until a skewer comes out clean. Allow to cool in the tin for about 30 mins, before turning out onto a rack.
  • When ready, slice the bread and serve with extra butter on the side.
