    Hello !

    I’m french and I would like to try this recipe but I need to know if it’s UK or US tablespoon in order to calculate in grams, can you help me ? Especially for the butter, I hesitate between 85 grams or 100 grams..

  4. Hi Hélène, We’re using the US tablespoon — didn’t know there was a difference between the two!

    Hey – what exactly IS the cooking time? And did you really mean ‘pour’ the batter? Cause mine was more like ‘putty’ the batter… It was almost dough!

    • Hi Agnes, In the recipe I say “about an hour” for the cook time. That means about 55 – 65 minutes, depending on your oven. As for the texture, perhaps you’re right and I should change it to “spoon the batter.” Thanks for the input!

    how do you call this basic for band bread it has several extras cloves & ginger is not basic!!!!

      Hi Evan, Sounds like we’ll have to agree to disagree! Ground ginger and cloves are pretty common kitchen staples, but if they’re not appealing to you, feel free to leave them out.
