It wasn't difficult at all. Everything was measured in cups and teaspoons, I didn't have to drag out my cake mixer and weighing scale. No whisking, beating or chilling involved. Just stir all the ingredients together and pop into the oven. My kind of recipe!
The recipe called for molasses which I didn't have in my pantry. I used dark brown sugar instead. I didn't exactly measure out 1/2 cup of grated fresh ginger either. I simply grated a big chunk of ginger (juice and all) into the mixture. I like my cake extra gingery!
Here it is after an hour in the oven. We're bringing it to best friend's party tonight. I pinched a tiny bit off the top to taste (delicious!). YK snuck into the kitchen and took off a small bit too.
It looks so delicious sitting there in the kitchen. I had better hide it before we eat it all up before the party.
Oh, I have a chicken roasting in the oven too. I seasoned the chicken with a medley of herbs (rosemary, basil and kaffir leaves) from my garden. One more hour of roasting to go.
Finally, the chicken is ready. Look at Rusty!
And here's a slice of the delicious cake!
