This cake is a little spicy gem and to combat some dryness I use an extra large egg.

I found that one egg was not enough to bind the dry ingrediants together so i think 2 eggs are better, also i added some stem ginger ,i also topped the cake with marzipane and ready to roll icing to make a ideal low fat christmas cake.This cake is really tasty,
