Ingredients

  • Syrup:
  • 1/4 cup ginger, cubed

  • 1/2 cup water

  • 3/8 cup white sugar

  • Cake:
  • 1/2 cup self-raising flour

  • 1/2 cup margarine

  • 1/2 cup sugar (half and half white & brown)

  • 2 tsp ginger

  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

  • 1/8 tsp/pinch allspice

  • 1 flax egg (1 tbsp flax + 2 1/2 water)

Directions

  • Prep your flax egg and put it in the fridge.
  • Make your ginger syrup by boiling water, adding ginger and sugar – stir as thickens and ginger caramelizes.
  • If you don’t want pieces of ginger in your cake, you can make the syrup while the cake’s baking instead.
  • Beat the margarine and sugar together followed by the flax egg.
  • Sift and fold in the flour and spices, followed by crystallized ginger pieces from the syrup.
  • Place cake mix into a small dish/ramekin.
  • If all mixture in one dish (ie. bigger cake like mine) bake at 150°C for 60 mins for best results – 180°C 40 mins if want it quicker.
  • If using multiple smaller ramekins, 150°C 30-40 mins or 180°C 20-25 mins.
  • While hot, poke holes in the cake and pour syrup over the cake – reheat the syrup first.
  • Enjoy hot!
