If you like ginger & especially ginger cakes, this is the one for you! This is the most moist and delectable ginger cake I have ever tasted! An old friend of my Mum's gave the recipe to her and she passed it on to me - it is a bit like Chinese Whispers, much changed and adapted since my Mum's friend scibbled it on the back of a napkin over 20 years ago, but still a firm favourite! It is the definitive style of a typical English High Tea Cake........get out your prettiest cake stand and your best Tea Set. At Easter time, I often cyrstalise some violets from the garden and decorate the cake with them, it looks wonderful & very spring like! NB: The size of the tin is VERY important in order to achieve a deep, moist cake.
