Ingredients in ginger cake

  • 175 g of butter
  • 75 g of honey
  • Lemon zest
  • 175 g of flour
  • 3.75 ml of ginger
  • 2 eggs

For the icing:

Preparation

  • First of all, preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • Then, melt the butter in a double boiler.
  • When it’s almost melted, add the honey and lemon zest and mix everything well.
  • After that, let it cool and then add the remaining ingredients (flour, ginger, and eggs).
  • Butter a baking tray and pour the mixture inside it.
  • Then, bake in the preheated oven for about 30 minutes.
  • While the cake is baking, you can make the topping. To do this, first put the honey and lemon juice in a pot over medium heat. When both ingredients have warmed up a bit and melted with each other, the topping is ready.
  • When you take the cake out of the oven, just prick it with a fork to make some holes and pour the topping on top so that it drenches the whole cake.
  • The cake should absorb all the topping liquid.
  • Let it cool, and enjoy it!

Easy, right? Also, you can decorate the cake any way you want. (For example, you can add candied ginger on top).
