Sure hoping someone can help me.
I'm looking for a Gingerbread Cake recipe same consistency as a Carrot Cake. Not Gingerbread biscuits.
I have an old gingerbread recipe which is great, I am new to converting recipes for TM, so i hope this one is ok. Look forward to hearing about how you go .
Gingerbread slab cake
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 2 eggs
- 3/4 cup light olive oil
- 1 cup golden syrup
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1 1/2 cups plain flour
- 3/4 cup self-raising flour
- 1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
- 1-2 tbsp ground ginger depending how strong you like it
- 1 tsp mixed spice
- 2 1/2 cups sugar
- 1 orange, using the zest and juice
- 1 cup walnuts, roughly chopped
- Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 5cm deep, 21cm x 31cm (base) slab style baking dish.
- Place brown sugar into mixing bowl and mill for 5 secs for speed 9. Set aside.
- Insert your butterfly into a clean, dry mixing bowl. Place eggs into your mixing bowl and beat for 10 secs on speed 4.
- Add oil, golden syrup and milk and mix for 6 secs on speed 4.
- Add all of the remaining cake ingredients, including the sugar and mix for 10 secs on speed 4.
- Pour mixture into baking dish and bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until a skewer inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean. Leave the cake to cool for 5 minutes in the pan before turning onto a wire rack to cool completely
- Place sugar into your mixing bowl and mill for 10 secs on speed 9.
- Add the orange rind and 1/4 cup orange juice and mix for 10 secs on speed 5 or until smooth, adding 3 to 4 teaspoons warm water if too thick. Spread the icing over the cake and sprinkle with walnuts. Allow icing to set before serving.
