This twist on a traditional treacle cake recipe from the Scottish Highlands is gathering quite a following, particularly among fans of ginger. This is a rich fruit cake, dense with dried fruits and cherries and add ale, molasses and lots of ginger – including some choice crystallized pieces for the top. Guaranteed to cheer up the gloomiest of days. PS It’s pronounced SKI-CAN.
