Yummy,but too sweet even though i only used 4 tablespoons of honey. I also used cinnamon instead of ginger as i dont like ginger.

I just made this after a big sugar craving and it was delicious - my first recipe tried from Recipezaar! I didn't have any baking powder so it probably didn't rise as high as it should have - the result was lovely dense, moist cake. It's a little sweet for me so I squirted a bit of lemon juice over it at the end - absolutely delicious.
