I haven’t baked for a while because the horrors of real life intervened. But in a desperate attempt to restore some sort of normality to my life, I have been going over all my recipes. It has been tempting to rely on an old favourite. A many times tried and trusted recipe. But curiosity overcame me when I saw a recipe for a sticky ginger loaf……and I thought “how can I tweak that recipe….”
A whisky mac is a lovely warming gingery drink and so I thought I’d see how it translated into cake form. I suspect, like the boozy banana bread recipe, that it will be subtle, but hopefully give the cake just a little something extra.
This recipe still needs tweaking (I can’t help myself, can I!). I want to swap the butter for oil, maybe add extra dates, and see how I go from there. In the meantime, it is a lovely gingery, slightly sticky cake. Mmmmm….breathe in deeply.
Just right for these “not quite yet summer” days.
