Mary Berry Golden Syrup Cake Ingredients

  • 100 g Butter or Margarine
  • 50 g Caster Sugar

  • 200 g Golden Syrup
  • 200 g Self-raising Flour
  • 1 Free-range Egg
  • 150 ml Milk
  • 2 tbsp Golden Syrup

How To Make Mary Berry Golden Syrup Cake

  1. Prepare the oven: Pre-heat your oven to 160°C (140°C for fan-assisted ovens), then grease and line a 2lb loaf pan with greaseproof paper. Ensure the paper is well-fitted to prevent any batter from sticking.
  2. Melt the ingredients: In a medium skillet, gently melt 100 g of butter or margarine, 200 g of golden syrup, 50 g of caster sugar, and 50 g of soft brown sugar, stirring occasionally until smooth. Set aside and let it cool for 10 minutes to avoid cooking the egg in the next step.
  3. Mix wet ingredients: In a small bowl, whisk together 150 ml of milk and 1 free-range egg until well combined. Set aside to ensure the mixture is ready when needed for the batter.
  4. Combine dry and wet ingredients: Sift 200 g of self-raising flour into a large mixing bowl to remove lumps. Gradually blend in the egg and milk mixture along with the cooled syrup mixture, stirring continuously until a smooth, lump-free batter forms.
  5. Pour the batter: Pour the mixture into the prepared loaf tin, spreading it evenly. Make sure the batter is level to ensure even baking and a uniform shape.
  6. Bake the cake: Bake in the preheated oven for about 1 hour, or until the cake is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. This ensures the cake is fully cooked through.
  7. Add the finishing touch: After cooling for 10 minutes, use a skewer to poke holes all over the top of the cake and drizzle 2 tablespoons of golden syrup over it. Allow the cake to cool fully before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Butter consistency: Ensure the butter or margarine is fully melted and smoothly combined with the sugars and syrup to avoid lumps in your batter.
  • Room temperature ingredients: Use milk and egg at room temperature to blend more easily with the other ingredients, creating a smoother batter.
  • Even baking: Rotate the loaf pan halfway through baking to ensure the cake bakes evenly and avoids over-browning on one side.
  • Checking doneness: Use a skewer to test the cake; it should come out clean without any wet batter clinging to it.

How To Store Leftovers Golden Syrup Cake

To Refrigerate: Wrap the cake in greaseproof paper, then in tin foil, and store it in an airtight container in the fridge. This will keep it fresh for up to one week.

In The Microwave: Place a slice of cake on a microwave-safe plate and cover it with a damp paper towel. Microwave on medium power for 20-30 seconds until warm. Avoid overheating to prevent drying out.

In The Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 160°C. Place the cake slice in the basket and heat for 5-7 minutes until warm. This method gives a slightly crisp exterior.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I use a different type of sugar in this cake?

Yes, you can substitute the caster sugar with granulated sugar and the soft brown sugar with light brown sugar. This might slightly alter the cake’s texture and flavor but will still result in a delicious cake.

How do I know when the cake is fully baked?

You will know the cake is fully baked when it is golden brown and a skewer inserted into the center comes out clean. If the skewer has wet batter on it, bake the cake for an additional 5-10 minutes and test again.

Can I make this cake without self-raising flour?

Yes, you can make this cake without self-raising flour by using all-purpose flour and adding baking powder. For every cup of all-purpose flour, add 2 teaspoons of baking powder to achieve the same leavening effect.
