    Hi everyone,

    My friends are coming at my home on Christmas evening & i want to make some cakes for them but don’t know any good recipe can anyone help me by suggesting some good recipes.


    Hi goodfood,

    I have a ginger cake that I love to make any time of year – I’ll be taking one to my rellies’ this Xmas day. It’s good as a cake but also makes a great dessert if you warm it up and serve with custard:

    125g softened butter

    125g soft dark brown sugar

    2 large eggs, whisked

    315g treacle

    250g plain flour

    2 tsp ground ginger

    100g glace ginger, chopped

    2 tbsp milk

    1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda

    Grease and line a 20cm square cake pan. Beat butter until soft and fluffy, then add sugar and continue beating until mixture is fluffy. Add eggs gradually in a stream, beating well. Add treacle and beat well. Sift flour with the ground ginger and fold in, then add the glace ginger. Slightly warm the milk, stir in the bicarb, then fold into cake mixture.

    Bake in a preheated oven at 180C for about 1 hour or until cooked when tested (cover the top of the cake with brown paper or foil if it’s browning too quickly). Leave in the pan for 10 minutes before turning out.


    Thanks for the recipe Rom!
