Fries suikerbrood (Frisian sugar loaf)

A delicious sweet bread from the north of Holland – perfect at tea time!

400 g of self raising flour
2.5 dl of milk
1 tsp of sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon of ginger syrup
1 sachet of vanilla sugar
300 g of sugar cubes
50 g of shredded ginger
5 tablespoons of white rock sugar
A pinch of salt

Sift the flour into a mixing bowl and add a teaspoon of sugar and a pinch of salt. Warm the milk briefly in a saucepan until lukewarm and pour this into the flour. Then add the egg, a tablespoon of ginger syrup and the vanilla sugar. Knead until the mixture forms a firm dough and allow to rise for the time indicated on the packet. Finely crush the sugar cubes and knead this, along with the shredded ginger, into the dough once it has risen. Take a bread pan and line the inside with aluminium foil. Next melt a little butter and generously coat the foil with it. Then add a layer of rock sugar, before filling the bread tin with the dough. Cover the dough with a tea towel and allow to rise for a further 45 minutes in a warm place. Now heat the oven to 225 C. Once the dough has fully risen, sprinkle with some more rock sugar and bake for around 30 minutes or until golden brown. Finally, remove the sugar bread from the tin and allow to cool in the aluminium foil on a rack.
