Amazing cake! I used fresh grated ginger and the flavour is spot on! Baked it for around 40 minutes in a loaf tin and it is perfectly moist and cuts lovely! Another success!!! Thank you! :)

Amazing! for a GF cake this is realy moist. I cooked it in a loaf tin. It didn't crumble when cut into slices. I used dark muscovado sugar and added some chrystalised and stem ginger for a more 'special' texture. Can't wait to use it for desserts as well. Thank you.
