Preheat the oven to 160°C. Line a 23 cm square cake tin or small roasting dish with non-stick baking paper. Heat butter, Sugar & Treacle together in a saucepan until butter is just melted. Remove from heat, stir in milk. Cool slightly.
Sift dry ingredients into a bowl. Make a well in the centre and tip in liquid ingredients. Mix quickly. Don't over mix. Spread mixture in prepared cake tin and bake for 45 - 50 minutes until gingerbread has risen and a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean.
Cool in the tin for 10 - 15 minutes before tipping out onto a cake rack.
Dust with Icing Sugar to serve.
