STICKY GINGER CAKE and a brand spanking new cake stand!

Posted on


For Nick’s birthday ultimate November he asked a ginger cake (over again).


No surprise there on the other hand I was happy to have a purpose to bake a recipe I have been placing my nose over for some time.  It’s at the Clandestine Cake internet web site and is thought of as one among Lynn Hill’s non-public recipes.  The Clandestine Cake Club as such folded some time up to now on the other hand the speculation continues to be alive and well in internet websites and social media.



It used to be easy to make and ticked the entire birthday cake bins.  Very gingery with a wonderful crumb and a slight stickiness – there’s a clue throughout the name.



I was moreover satisfied to have a purpose to use my new black cake stand.


As a person who has additional cake stands than a sensible particular person should ever need I did hesitate in short previous than searching for it.  (Very in short.)  I have been hankering after a black one for a few years on the other hand not at all came upon one that I favored.  Ultimate 12 months I made one for myself – from a black plate glued to an just about black (charcoal grey) candle stick.  It’s top quality on the other hand, similar to buses, while you’ve finally given up hope and ordered a taxi, the bus you have been able for turns up.  This one grew to become up in an antique/vintage retailer at Cromford Mill and used to be very modestly priced, so I swooped.  It’s comprised of black glass and is said to be vintage 1950’s.


The cake used to be so excellent it’ll most probably be my go-to ginger cake any more.  You most likely can see the recipe proper right here.  I used a 23cm round springform tin as an alternative of the sq. one throughout the recipe and it worked top quality.
