Sticky Apple and Ginger Pecan Loaf


A slice of this and a cup of tea and you won’t want to do much else with your day! This rich and sticky loaf is perfect for those chilly afternoons.


  • 150g Butter
  • 150g Soft Brown Sugar
  • 150g Golden Syrup
  • 300ml Milk
  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 1 Tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1 ½ Tsp Baking Powder
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • 75g Pecans, roughly chopped
  • 3 Pieces of Stem Ginger, roughly chopped
  • 1 Tsp Stem Ginger Syrup
  • 3 Apples, peeled, cored, and chopped


Fire up your wood fired oven to optimum temperature, then allow to cool to around 180°c, the perfect baking temperature.

Next put the butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan and melt in the oven as it is coming down to temperature. Remove from the heat, add the milk, and leave to cool slightly.

Put the flour, cinnamon and baking powder in a mixer, and add the slightly cooled syrup mix.

Next, gradually add the eggs. Once the eggs are fully incorporated add all the other ingredients.

The mixture will seem pretty wet- but that’s a good thing! Pour the mixture into a greaseproof lined loaf tin and bake in your wood fired oven for 45-55 minutes.

To check the loaf is cooked, pierce the centre with a wooden skewer or knife- if it comes out clean, it’s ready!
