Today's is the second entry of my new series of Alphabetic recipes. Each day for the next month and more, I will be adding a new recipe linked to a different letter of the alphabet. As I collect recipes from all over the globe, and have lots of Welsh recipes, I am going to use a blend of the Welsh and English alphabets:
A | B | C | D | E | F | Ff | G | H | I | J | K | L | Ll | M | N | O | P | Q | R | Rh | S | T | U | V | W | X | Y | Z
so there will be 31entries in total. As today is the second day in this series I am starting with the letter 'B'.
Continuing with the Autumnal theme of the first recipe, today I have a modern British recipe for a classic Bonfire Night (November 5th) recipe for a Bonfire Ginger and Apple cake (that's three 'B's all in one recipe!).
The practice of preparing and serving ginger cakes both in the autumn and for Bonfire night is a long one, particularly in England. This cake has a little extra spice because of the sliced ginger arranged on the base of the cake.
Bonfire Ginger and Apple Cake RecipeIngredients:
100g muscovado sugar
8 tbsp treacle (molasses)
1 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
200g plain flour
1/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 Granny Smith apple, peeled, cored and finely diced
2 balls of preserved stem ginger (in syrup), very thinly sliced
butter for greasing
