Homemade Gingerbread Cake

Gingerbread Recipe

Ah…. Gingerbread Cake… It just screams ‘AUTUMN’ to me. Autumn days are the best time for baking, and there are so many delicious autumn-y recipes that I love making. One is this quick and easy gingerbread cake. It takes just a few minutes to make and every bite really does taste of autumn with it’s sweet, ginger-ness. It’s one of my favourite things to whip up on a grey, rainy day. The best thing about it is that it gets better after sitting for a day or two – kept in an air -tight tin, it will become moist and sticky with time. Gingerbread cake is perfect with your morning latte.

  1. That’s funny, my kids were just saying last weekend that they wanted to make ginger biscuits or cake. We never got around to it for bonfire night but this looks so delicious I’ll try it out soon I reckon. Thanks! x
