Date and Ginger Sticky Cake(for when life is pissing you off)

Date & Ginger Sticky Cake

ginger cake recipe

When everything is just pissing you off… and even listening to Fighter by Christina Aguilera won’t give you a boost, all you need is a heart-warming sticky date & ginger cake. And maybe an episode of Game of Thrones with your flatmates.  Or listen to a bit of Machel Montano... Ok.. so I am feeling the Carribean warmth and ginger cake to give me a lift.

Really not in a good mood at the moment. But I kinda just wanna scream F*** EVERYTHING, except cake of course. If you wanna join, just comment and we can scream it together. wooooooooooooo!

Enough of the negativity and my whining, here’s how you make it.

Recipe:

250 g plain flour
1 tsp ground ginger
1½ tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 tsp bicarbonate of soda
3 tbsp milk
125 g butter
125 g black treacle (if you don’t have any just add double golden syrup)
125 g golden syrup
125 g dark soft brown sugar (or muscavado sugar)
110 ml water
2 eggs

2 handfuls of chopped & seeded dates

Method:

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C and grease your cake tin (or line with baking paper)
  2. Mix together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy
  3. Add the eggs and mix in thoroughly
  4. Now add in the milk, black treacle, golden syrup & water until thoroughly mixed in
  5. Sift in the flour, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, bicarbonate of soda and fold into the mix with a large spoon.
  6. Finally add the dates until evenly dispersed.
  7. Spoon into your baking tray & allow to bake for 25-30 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
  8. I like to eat it HOT with icecream! So depending on your preference either serve straight away or allow to cool.

Enjoy your pick me up!
