Duerr’s Sticky Ginger Cake

Time: 50 mins

Makes 1 medium sized cake

What you’ll need:

For the cake:

100g butter

200g dark muscovado sugar

125g golden syrup

100g Duerr’s Chunky Ginger Preserve

½ tsp bicarbonate of soda

200g self raising flour

½ tsp mixed spice

2 tsp ground ginger

2 eggs

75ml milk

For the Icing:

1tbs Duerr’s Chunky Ginger Preserve

½ lemon, juice only

3tbs icing sugar, sifted

What to do:

1) Pre-heat the oven to 180ºC/160ºC fan/Gas 4.

2) Line a 20cm diameter round tin with non-stick paper.

3) Melt the butter, sugar and syrup over a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Add the Ginger Preserve, stir until melted then remove from the heat and stir in the bicarb of soda.

4) Weigh the flour into a bowl and add the mixed spice and ground ginger. Beat the eggs with the milk, tip into the flour then pour in the melted butter mixture.

5) Mix well with a whisk until a thick batter consistency. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake for 35-40 minutes (a skewer comes out clean if the cake is ready). Set aside to cool.
