For the cake:

Heat the butter, brown sugar, golden syrup, black treacle and milk in a saucepan on a low heat until all ingredients have melted. Take off the heat and leave to cool slightly.

Pour in the melted ingredients and mix well.

Pour into a lined 10” x 8” tray and bake at 160C for 45 minutes - 1 hour.

Leave to cool.

For the cinnamon frosting:

Cream the butter for 5 minutes until soft.

Add in the icing sugar and ground cinnamon and mix well.

Spoon over the cooled traybake and spread using a knife.

You could top with crumbled ginger biscuits, sprinkles and a drizzle of melted dark chocolate.

Once baked, store in an airtight tin and enjoy within 3 days.
