    Very nice. My nana used to make the best ginger fluff sponges for birthdays and family get togethers. Her chocolate sponges with choc cream were to die for too ... Sorry I'm rambling now lol back to topic. This sponge was lovely and light though I dusted it with icing sugar instead of a heavy icing (loved that when I was a kid but find I don't like that much sugar now I'm all grown up). I did add about 1/2 tsp of extra ground ginger to the sponge as personal preference - I highly recommend this recipe. X

    Lovely simple cake tasted amazing! I did however use a clean TM bowl to whip the cream and added some extra cinnamon too it. Next time I may add a honey cream frosting instead as the icing but that's just personal choice! Overall a yummy cake!
