easy to make, light but filling, you can taste both the ginger and the coffee fully – it’s lovely. My favourite cake is carrot cake, but this cake is very special to me, as I was taught how to make it by my next door neighbour, Ethel – bless her, she is no longer with us.
I’m often used to ask Ethel for her traditional recipes when I wanted to make cakes, she was the best, especially when it comes to biscuits. (something I don’t have much experience with) I generally prefer to make bread or biscuits rather than cakes, but I’m really pleased with the results for this Coffee and Ginger cake – it certainly tastes delicious. Coffee and ginger are such an incredible combination, the ginger and coffee help to cut through the sweetness, offering a really well-balanced flavour. It’s also very light, beautifully moist and should keep well for a few days – although I’m not sure my husband will allow it as he have a very sweet tooth.
I do hope you will give this recipe a try.
One tip Ethel my neighbour taught me was that when you whisk the butter and the sugar, always make sure that the bowl is warm and the butter must be at room temperature. Bless her.
Now let’s get on and make it ……….
