Ginger Sponge Cream

September 29, 2013

I felt like making cake 

My day had gone from bad to worse.  The sun was shining, my hair looked great, my clothes looked lovely, but I could not bring myself to smile.  I was always told that when you are down making others happy should make you feel better. I decided to make a cake with lots of cream, something delightful to eat with tea.

This recipe was re designed from 101 Cheap Eats ( BBC Books, 2003).

Ginger Spice Cream


125g butter, 125g sugar, 2 eggs, 125g self raising flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 2 tbsps ground ginger, 3 tbsps whole milk, 300ml double cream, 4 tbsps golden syrup.


1. Beat the sugar and butter together until creamy.
2. Beat in the eggs.
