    MarraMamba's Note:

    Brian Turner the famed british chef says "My mum's recipe was known by the whole town of Elland twenty year's ago, it is legendary! I only found the recipe two year's ago, it's easy, moist and delicious and now I have a grand daughter by the name of Lily, I want the world to know about it" As a ginger cake lover, i hope to get the chance to try it soon. The simplicity intrigues me. Let it rest the 24 hours suggested.

      Any recipe by Brian Turner, a fellow Yorkshire person, is a good recipe, this was no exception! Good recipe - I added a little buttercream to the top and sprinkled the top with crystallised ginger for an extra ginger kick. Thanks Marra - and Brian too!!! FT:-)
