Spiced muscovado loaf cake with brown sugar icing!

Another day off, another bake! Today's recipe is from the March 2013 edition of the Sainsbury's magazine! And it's amazing. It's only 266 calories a slice when the cake is cut into 10 slices.

Ingredients for the cake
175ml whole milk
2 tbsp ground ginger
1 tbsp ground nutmeg
1 tsp ground cinnamon
75g muscovado sugar
75g soft unsalted butter
75g black treacle
100g golden syrup
200g self raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 medium egg
For the icing
25g very soft unsalted butter
40g muscovado sugar
25g icing sugar
1 tbsp double cream
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1. Preheat the oven to 180. Line a 7cm deep, 20cmx9cm loaf tin with greaseproof paper.
2. Put the milk, spices, sugar, butter, treacle and syrup in a large saucepan and melt together over a low heat. Put the flour and bicarb in a large mixing bowl. Pour the wet mixture in the bowl and stir well. Add the egg and mix thoroughly.
3. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and bake for 35 minutes, until a skewer comes out clean. Leave to cool.
4. To prepare the icing, put all the ingredients in a bowl and beat together. Spread on top of the cooled cake and sprinkle with a pinch of nutmeg.

Ta da! Another easy bake, with very tasty results! X Bo
