The cake is excellent, it's light and fluffy, and delicious in taste , i didn't put the white peppers but i will make it the next time with the peppers
Wow! This is exactly the cake I was looking for. I love the pepper and ginger additions! I didn't have buttermilk but regular worked just fine. I also doubled the frosting coat, but the flavor of the cake didn't really need it. It was also very moist. Thanks so much for sharing.
YES! This cake is just PERFECT for my tastes! I made it as directed with the maximum amounts of ginger and white pepper. It has a lovely texture and buttery lemon flavor with the warm heat coming through as an after effect. Just LOVELY! Everyone at my work enjoyed this as well. I made this for A Taste of Yellow Livestrong Day.
This was a really really yummy cake. Will definately make again and have been asked for the recipe also. No need to tone down the ginger or pepper ( had no white pepper and fine black was great ) this was really quirky and delicious! Thanks Julesong - its a keeper!
I served this at a family gathering, so I toned down the ginger and pepper a little bit just to be safe (used about 1 1/2 tsp each). While you could definitely tell they were in there, it was in no way overpowering. Even the children thought it was great! When (not if!) I make this again, I'll use the full amounts for a more intense flavor. Thanks for the great recipe, Julesong.
I tried this cake out of curiousity, just to see what a cake flavoured with pepper would taste like. I am very pleasantly surprised. I used 1 tsp. of fresh ginger and 1-1/2 tsp. white pepper. When you bite into the cake, you can't taste the spices but afterwards there is a very pleasant tingle on the tongue. My cake was baked through after 1 hour. I didn't make the lemon glaze this time but will try it if I make the cake for company. This is a definite keeper!
This is definitely a keeper, very addictive. Loved the combination of ginger and the tartness of the lemon. I only used 1 tablespoon of pepper because when I tasted the batter it seemed peppery enough. But there wasn't much after it was baked, so next time I will use more. Thanks so much!
i am going to try this tomorow, but as a King cake for Mardi Gras! a tip for all who are going to make a king cake; the colored sprinkles colors you need are;Purple, Green, and Gold. also don't forget the charm! whoever gets the charm is supposed to be very lucky!
This cake is wonderfully moist and lemony with a capital L! The white pepper and ginger give it a delightful bit of warmth.
