Ginger Beer Cake

This week saw national ‘kiss a ginger day’! As a ginger myself I do love to cook and bake with ginger. Recently I’ve been experimenting with using fizzy drinks in my bakes and the outcomes have been delicious. So I thought this recipe is just perfect to share with you this week.

So let’s get started…

The ingredients you will need are:

  • 250g plain flour
  • 175g caster sugar
  • 2 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 150ml ginger beer
  • 80ml vegetable oil
  • 5 tbsp golden syrup
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • dark brown sugar to sprinkle on top

This is how we do it….

  1. Preheat oven to 150C / 300F / gas mark 2.
  2. In a large bowl, put the sugar, oil, golden syrup and eggs in together and beat until well mixed and the lumps of sugar are dissolved.
  3. In a separate bowl, place all the dry ingredients together.
  4. Add the dry ingredients in with the wet ingredients gradually, making sure each time you mix well to remove any lumps.
  5. Add the ginger beer gradually, until well mixed in.
  6. Then pour into a greased and line 2lb loaf tin.
  7. Bake for approximately 1 hour – 1 hour 15 minutes. Once the cake is firm to the touch, remove from oven.
  8. Sprinkle immediately with a little dark drown sugar to decorate, then allow to cool for 10 minutes, before placing on the cooling rack.
  9. Served best with your favourite cuppa.
