Cook with Ginger: Ginger Loaf Cake

When I was down in London last weekend, something made me have an idea. One of my friends was eating a slice of ginger cake, and I thought...

Hold on! I've NEVER made ginger cake!!

THIS will not do!!

So, when I got back home, I found a recipe online (find it here )

Today, I decided to give it a go...




The tin was SO full!! I was really scared in case the cake spilt over the edge of the loaf tin, but everything stayed contained...Thank Goodness!!

Imagine the washing up if it had exploded!!


I didn't line my loaf tin with baking parchment. I just greased my tin with butter. I also was running to a tight schedule, so adapted the temperature and times for my cake. It turned out fine, but I'd recommend following the recipe, particularly if you're like me and cakes aren't your strongest point!

Straight out the oven...that light coloured smudge is the steam!!

Ooooo!! So yummy!!!

I of course had to taste some (Chef's prerogative!) The rest is wrapped up in parchment. I'll wait a few days for the flavours to infuse...

And then I'm going to gobble it up!!

Happy Baking!
