Ginger Cake Recipe | An Easy One.

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.

Pretzel Bread

On Sally’s Smorgasbord, I always read Carol Taylor’s recipes with great interest, and as a bread lover, I was tempted to have a go myself when I read the recipe for pretzel bread. So, yesterday, I freed up my afternoon and made the bread. It’s not complicated but there are a lot of parts to it which made it really fun to do. And I was truly amazed as how it turned out. Totally delicious, crispy crust, and soft and chewy inside with a lovely taste. It will be a staple in my kitchen now. So I just had to share my baking day here.

(As I don’t have a family-size saucepan any more, I halved the recipe and then halved again. I put one half in the freezer – hope it’s ok in there. I’m adding a link here to the original post. Perhaps someone else might have a go?)
