Free Healthy Recipe - Toddlers Pear Gingerbread

This is a delicious treat for the whole family to enjoy. Kids will love this dense moist slice that sweet enough without being too sweet. A healthier option to most commercial sugary cakes available.

¼ cup golden syrup
100 grams unsalted butter
½ teaspoon sea salt
¾ tablespoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
¼ teaspoon ground cloves
2 eggs lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 180C. Grease a 23 x 12.5cm loaf tin

In a small saucepan, heat the golden syrup, sugar and butter on low heat. When melted, take off heat, pour into a large bowl and let cool slightly. In another bowl, sift the dry ingredients. Whisk the eggs into the syrup mixture, then slowly add the flour mix until all whisked in. Peel and coarsely grate the pear. Then stir into the cake mixture with the whisk. Pour into prepared loaf tin and bake for 50 minutes, or until a skewer inserted into the middle comes out clean. Cool in tin for 20 minutes then turn out onto a wire rack to cool completely or serve warm.

Store in an airtight container for a few days or freeze for up to one month.
