Easy quick gingerbread cake ginger cake recipe uk

This gingerbread cake recipe comes from allrecipes. I was a bit worried about using the boiling water, but clearly it’s a magic ingredient because the gingerbread cake turned out beautifully. The abundance of golden syrup makes this a sticky cake to make, but gives it its lovely golden colour and perfectly moist, chewy texture. The perfect accompaniment to a cup of tea or coffee, this gingerbread cake is ideal for elevenses or afternoon tea.
