Ginger Cake

I’ve mentioned before that I’m a fan of Felicity Cloake’s “How to cook perfect…” series in the Guardian.  This afternoon I’ve had a lovely time trying out her ginger cake.  The recipe appeals to me because it doesn’t contain any black treacle.  I’m eating a slice with my cup of tea as I write this.

I followed Felicity’s recipe precisely and I’m very pleased with it.  I baked it in the baking oven with the rack on the floor.  After 30 minutes I put a piece of baking parchment on top and also slid in the cold plain shelf to cool the oven down a little.  Total baking time: 50 minutes.
