24. Ginger Cake with Orange Icing

Sorry for not blogging for a while, I’ve been on holiday and what not.

I made this ginger cake a couple of weeks ago and can’t really remember what I did so I’ll keep this brief!

The mix was very runny for a cake mix as it contained a lot of butter and syrup.

The ginger flavour came from powdered ginger and the flour was wholemeal instead of white. I used a few currants as well.

It was then baked…

After it was cooled I made orange icing from orange juice and icing sugar (orange to complement the ginger) and decorated with the icing and orange zest.

This cake was really tasty and really moist. It rose well and cooked all the way through despite the runny mixture. And as always, really good with a cuppa!
