Ginger Cake

Since I had some at Leila's a few weeks ago, I've been wanting to make some gingerbread.

I have a copy of the wonderful Rose Carrarini's 'Breakfast, Lunch, Tea, Rose Bakery', so in lieu of a gingerbread recipe I decided that I'd use her recipe for Fresh Ginger Cake.

Fresh from the oven yesterday...

Breakfast treat today...

It's quite a spicy cake, made with freshly grated and dry ground ginger, with the added kick of a pinch of cayenne pepper. Not too moist, not too dry, just right... and also perfect tonight with a big dollop of the very best French crème fraîche (good call P x) and a cup of tea.
