Ginger Cake

August 12, 2015

Mummy’s Birthday Cake Practice

I planned to make mummy an extravagant cake for her birthday, but after I finished practicing she revealed that for her birthday she wanted macaroons.  I was quite nervous at making something so delicate but at least I had perfected a new way to make ginger cake.  Hurray!

This recipe was taken from Caribbean Cookery Secrets (Right Way, 2013).


225g butter, 225g caster sugar, 4 eggs, 225g self – raising flour, 50g mixed spice, 2 tbsps ground ginger, 50g ground almonds, 2 tbsps milk


  1. Cream together the butter and sugar.
  2. Lightly beat in the eggs.
  3. Sieve in the flour, mixed spice and ground ginger together.
  4. Mix with ground almonds.
  5. Stir in gently and mix with milk until you get a smooth mixture.
  6. Grease an 8 inch cake tin.
  7. Pour in the mixture.
  8. Bake in the centre of the oven for an hour at 170 degrees C.
  9. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
