I have made the gingerbread recipe several times but using all Self Raising flour as I find it difficult to access the whole meal flour. It very easy to follow and latterly I have been beating the egg and milk into the treacle mix when it cools a bit and this helps speed up the time it takes to make the gingerbread. It makes great gingerbread, that, if there's any left, will last without drying out for 5 or 6 days. I always wrap it in foil to help keep it moist.

Delicious and so easy to make. It is also nice with some lemon flavoured icing on the top. I make this recipe regularly
