    Fiery sticky ginger cake

    This fiery sticky ginger cake I used to eat on it’s own, without the lemon drizzle.  That was before I properly developed a love of lemons in general, so now I add a bit of lemon icing on top!  Certainly not buttercream, but just lemon juice and icing sugar to add lift.  This is not the same as parkin, as this has added milk and egg and no oats.  Finally, there are no oats included in this recipe and the flours used are different.

    Steps

    1
    Done

    Pre-heat the oven and grease and line an 18 cm x 7 cm cake tin.
    Put the dry ingredients into a bowl and whisk together until evenly combined.

    2
    Done

    Add the cubed butter to the dry ingredients and rub the butter through until they resemble breadcrumbs.
    This is much like when making pastry.

    3
    Done

    Into a heavy bottomed saucepan, add the sugar, treacles and milk and place over a low heat.
    Stir until the sugar dissolves and bring to just below boiling point.

    4
    Done

    Add the grated ginger into the flour mixture and combine.
    Slowly add the treacle and milk mixture while continuing to stir.

    5
    Done

    In a separate bowl, beat the egg until homogenous and slowly pour into the cake mixture.
    Beat until smooth and batter-like.

    6
    Done

    Pour into the cake tin and bake for between 50 minutes to 1 hour.
    When a toothpick can be inserted into the centre of the cake and comes out clean, it is baked.

    7
    Done

    Leave to cool in the tin before turning onto a wire wrack over some cling film.
    Into a bowl, sift in the icing sugar and add the zest of the lemon.
    Slowly add the lemon juice a bit at time while mixing until it reaches the desired consistancy.

    8
    Done

    Drizzle the cake in a suitable pattern.
    The cake should last a couple of weeks and I find it gets better after a few days!
