      The recipe sounds delicious BUT in order for me to make it, I need the break-down from grams and ml to cups. A Lamington pan measures out to a 13"x9"x2" pan.

      I asked my husband (who doesn't cook) to make this cake for me one day while I was bussy. He added lots of greated fresh ginger including the recommended 1 TBS ginger. The cake was for my fathers birthday, he Loves ginger! (hense the added fresh ginger). The cake was SO YUMMY!! I asked him to make one for our son's 2nd birthday. We liked it so much I made up the recipe and put the mix into a piping bag and made mini ginger biscuites and added a filling (ginger kisses). They didn't last long. Thanks for sharing this yummy cake recipe!

      Very easy to make. Tasted good too! I ended up using a square tin and a round tin as I didn't have a lamington tin. I also used skim milk made up from powdered milk with no adverse effect on the cake.
