I made this cake yesterday; a recipe I hadn’t used for ages. The cake turns out very soft, a bit crumbly, and totally delicious. As you can see from the photograph here, I’m about to cut myself a (huge) slice and have it with lovely coffee.
1and 1/4 cups of spelt (or white) flour
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 cup of buttermilk
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup olive oil
1 dsp honey
1 beaten egg
Mix all the dry ingredients together
Mix all the wet ingredients together
Mix all together until well combined
Put into a greased/lined loaf tin – I just brush with olive oil
Oven 180 degrees for 30 mins
Cool in a damp tea towel on a wire rack.
Serve on its own, or warmed and topped with plain yogurt – and try not to eat it all at once!
For a change, you can replace the spices with crushed walnuts and 2 dsp powdered coffee.
