This has been a favourite for years AND so easy to make. Not too sure about the name though!
- 500 g self raising flour
- 250 g butter, chopped
- 250 g sugar
- 4.92 ml bicarbonate of soda
- 9.85 ml baking powder
- 29.58 ml golden syrup
- 14.79 ml ginger
- 500 ml milk
- Mix everything BUT NOT the milk.
- Heat the milk to just below boiling then pour over mixed ingredients.
- Mix well or until butter has melted (although I have left some whole bits in).
- Pour into a greased lamington tin
- Bake 45 minutes @ 180°C.
- Serve with a dusting of icing sugar.
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.
