    Mikekey's Note:

    Very rich "double" ginger cake. Crystallized ginger is found in the Asian food section. I like to eat it like candy!

      This is the most delicious ginger cake I ever tried! I used a gluten free flour mix of 1 c white rice flour, 1/3 c sweet rice flour, 1/3 c tapioca starch, 1/3 c millet flour and 1 tsp. xanthan gum and it turned out perfectly. Also I used only about 1/2 cup brown rice syrup and 3/8 cup molasses and skipped the sugar - it was still plenty sweet for me, just perfect. I'm sorry I can't use confectioner's sugar for decoration, but it tastes fantastic without! I'll for sure make this again. Thanks for sharing! Made for Comfort Cafe Snowqueen's Round 2010.

      What a lovely ginger cake Mike. We enjoyed this rich, dark, spicy treat very much. I adore crystallized ginger, it adds such depth to dishes. A quick and easy to make cake that I will be making again...and its good for you too. Thank you so much for sharing.

      A quite lovely cake, though less 'gingery' than I anticipated. I used a pretty stencil and 10x to make a design on the top. Served whipped cream on the side. Thanks again, mikekey!
