Description

A cup of tea - it's perfect to wash away the spicy sugars, especially a cup of spiced chai or a fragrant Earl Grey for an afternoon tea treat after an array of sandwiches Bicarbonate of soda - if swapping for baking powder, I recommend using self-raising flour too, but it won't be as light or moist That is because ginger and dark brown muscovado sugar were introduced to the British market from Jamaica by the Spanish in the 18th century. And around 50 years ago, was commercialised in the UK as a McVities Jamaica Ginger Cake recipe. While melting butter and sugar mix, scrape the bottom of the pan to test if you can feel grit at the bottom. If you can, then the sugar has not dissolved yet! Ice cream - heat up and enjoy with a drizzle of single cream (half and half), whipped cream or vanilla ice cream

To avoid lumps in the cake batter, sift the flour, bicarb, and spices and patiently stir in a little bit at a time by hand or into a bowl of a stand mixer Bicarbonate of soda - or baking soda, not baking powder, so that it reacts with the acids in the cake mix

Before you go!

Golden syrup - swap for the syrup that comes with stem ginger - it tastes incredible with the extra boost in flavour. Or use light corn syrup, agave, etc Then test by inserting a skewer into the middle of the cake to see if it comes out clean. If not, repeat baking in 5-10 minute increments. Storing - we prefer eating homemade ginger cake after storing it for a couple of days in a cake tin at room temperature. But it can last up to 7 days in an airtight container. Do not boil the syrup mixture while melting with the butter and sugar as you would be essentially making toffee. This can result in a hard, dry cake. Try opting for low to medium heat at a push

If you avoid a small pan to melt the sugars, syrups, and butter, you can use a larger pan as a mixing bowl tooThis Jamaican ginger cake is delicious on its own, but you can also serve it with some other treats to make it even more special: Festive - try poking holes in the cake while cooling, then feed it with a few teaspoons of ginger wine, rum, brandy, etc Key tips: Don't open the oven until 50 minutes is up and don't attempt to skewer test a wobbly top cake as it may sink. Stem ginger - to save money, swap for crystalised ginger, 2 tablespoon of fresh ginger, peeled and grated. Or a much cheaper way is to use mixed peel for citrus flavours with a similar texture

Heating- If you want to eat the next day, defrost in the fridge if required and microwave a slice for 30 seconds and serve with hot custard or melty ginger ice cream 💡Pro TipsFruity - instead of ginger, try stirring in mixed peel, cherries, cranberries, dates, raisins, sultanas, etc. Or stir in some ready made mincemeat
