Lightly grease and line with baking paper a 20cm x 10cm loaf tin. Preheat oven to 170°C.
In a medium saucepan add the butter, Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar, Chelsea Treacle and Chelsea Golden Syrup. Place over medium-low heat, stirring until butter has melted and ingredients are well combined. Set aside to cool.
In a medium bowl, sift the flour, bicarbonate of soda, ginger, cinnamon and mixed spice. Create a well in the centre and pour in cooled treacle mixture, milk, egg and lime zest. Beat well with a wooden spoon until mixture is glossy and smooth. Pour mixture into prepared tin and bake in the oven for 50 to 60 minutes, or until a skewer comes out clean when inserted into the centre of the loaf.
Set aside in the tin for 10 minutes. Turn onto a wire rack to cool completely. Once loaf has cooled completely, combine Chelsea Icing Sugar with the lime juice in a small bowl and drizzle over the cake. Sprinkle with pistachios. Serve with creme fraiche, if desired.
