STICKY GINGER CAKE and a brand spanking new cake stand!

Posted on


For Nick’s birthday ultimate November he asked a ginger cake (another time).


No surprise there alternatively I was satisfied to have a reason to bake a recipe I have been putting my nose over for some time.  It’s at the Clandestine Cake internet web page and is thought of as one among Lynn Hill’s private recipes.  The Clandestine Cake Club as such folded some time previously alternatively the theory is still alive and effectively in internet websites and social media.



It was once easy to make and ticked the entire birthday cake bins.  Very gingery with a ravishing crumb and a slight stickiness – there’s a clue inside the name.



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


As a person who has further cake stands than a sensible 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 alternatively on no account came upon one that I liked.  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 of the range alternatively, just like buses, whilst you’ve finally given up hope and ordered a taxi, the bus you have been able for turns up.  This one became up in an antique/vintage retailer at Cromford Mill and was once very modestly priced, so I swooped.  It’s created from black glass and is claimed to be vintage 1950’s.


The cake was once so just right it’ll most likely be my go-to ginger cake any further.  You perhaps can see the recipe proper right here.  I used a 23cm round springform tin as an alternative of the sq. one inside the recipe and it worked top of the range.
