And I’m back with another baking post! It was perfect baking weather early this week; rain-soaked days – what better to do than bake a cake. For the longest time, I had wanted to try a Ginger Cake recipe that I had stumbled across while randomly web-surfing, but for some reason or the other it was being pushed to the back.
So this week I hunted for the piece of the paper on which I had scribbled the recipe and had a go. Though the recipe didn’t call for it, I added some pieces of candied ginger to the batter. Candied ginger is easy to make; try this David Lebovitz recipe. Also reserve some of the syrup from the candied ginger to drizzle on the cake. Again, this is my own twist to the recipe since I wanted a big gingery hit! You can change the quantity of ginger as per your taste.
The outcome was a beautiful, moist cake with the heady aroma of ginger filling up my kitchen – blissful! I also dusted the cake with icing sugar and decorated it with pieces of candied ginger, which gave the cake a lovely finish. Without further ado, here is the recipe.
