On to my first bake-off. A ginger cake. This is a brilliant recipe for anyone that wants to do something a little more challenging than your average sponge cake, and it tastes delish. Definitely a favourite of mine, I bloody love anything ginger.
Ingredients (for 6 chunky portions):
50g caster sugar
150g plain flour
1 teaspoon bicarbonate of soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
125ml hot water
1) Preheat the oven to 180degrees (gas mark 4) and lightly grease and flour any baking tin you can find.
3) Give the whole mixture a good stir with a wooden spoon. Try to get as many lumps out as you can, and don't be afraid to whack the bowl under your arm for maximum energy! (Just don't be stupid enough to wear a cream top, like I did)
