Thelema’s GingerBread

Now this is a delicious tasty easy treat….with amazing flavours…

you can choice to do this as a loaf or make it as muffins, either way, a treat.

What’s more, is it has a few days shelf life, due to the oil in the mixture that keeps the texture moist!


  • 3 cups flour
  • pinch salt
  • cup castor sugar
  • 3 tsp ground ginger
  • 2 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 cup sunflower oil
  • 1 cup golden syrup
  • 1 cup lukewarm water
  • 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda (dissolved in 1/4 cup of water, that is over and above the 1 cup of water above)
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 loaf tins, lined and greased

How to put together?
Now I’ve never seen a simpler recipe in terms of mixing.

  1. Heat oven at 170 degrees celsius
  2. The order of the ingredients shown above, is the order of the mixing together OR do what I did, which is that I put all into my kitchen at once, and then just mixed.  Once all the ingredeints are mixed together, mix them for 5 minutes.  Thus my kitchen aid vs doing it by hand or with a kitchen hand-mixer.
  3. Grease two loaf tins, and line the bottoms.
  4. Bake for 50minutes or until ready. If you decided on making muffins, then awake for about 20 minutes, with the mixture place into muffin holder cases and put into a  cupcake/muffin tin tray.
    NOTE: since it contains oil, the shelf life and moisture of this loaf, is better!

As simple as that!

Although Thelema passed away a few years ago, her memory lives on via her gingerbread…
