Rich, dull wet cake that keeps well. Extraordinary with a cuppa, or serve it hot with frozen yogurt or custard for a rich wipe pudding!
250g/8oz relaxed spread (or margarine for without lactose)
250g/8oz dull muscovado sugar
A big part of a 225g tin dark remedy
375g/12oz plain flour
5 tsp ground ginger
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 eggs, beaten
3 pieces stem ginger (solidified/from a container) – discretionary
300ml/half pt milk (unsweetened soya milk if without lactose)
2 tsp bicarbonate of pop
This blend makes to the point of filling 2 x standard 7inch Victoria sandwitch tins or 1 x 10inch measurement tin. Oil and standard your tin(s) with baking paper; preheat the broiler to 160C/325F/Gas 3.
Tenderly intensity the margarine, sugar and remedy together in a container, mixing until smooth. Permit to cool a bit.
In a huge blending bowl, mix together the flour and ground flavors. Pour in the remedy blend and mix completely to consolidate. Mince the stem ginger finely and mix with the eggs in with the general mish-mash.
Warm the milk tenderly in a pan, mixing delicately to keep away from it consuming at the foundation of the dish. Add the bicarb of pop and allowed it to froth a bit. Mix into the gingerbread combination until all around mixed.
Fill the arranged tin(s).
Baking time: for 2x 7 inch cakes is 25-30mins (heat both together). For 1x 10inch cake prepare for approx 1 hour or until a stick embedded into the focal point of the cake tells the truth.
This cake keeps all around well in a water/air proof tin, and really works on over the initial 2-3 days. Appreciate!
