Nigel Slater's double ginger cake is superb (I leave out the sultanas)

My Jamaican MIL told me to use Levi Roots's recipe when i asked her for a recommendation smile

P.S. It's foolproof and people always ask for the recipe smile

Rachel Allen recipe

I make this without the syrup and without the lemon icing, so it develops that soft slightly sticky crust after cooling overnight. Without the additions it is a lovely dark plain gingerbread that can take buttering or spreading with cream cheese.

Last week in a cafe I had a slice of The Most Incredible Ginger Cake Ever. It was really dark and spicy and treacley, almost bitter, but soft and sticky too. It came with a little pot of salted butter to spread on which was incredibly indulgent.

I only have a parkin recipe, which has failed every time I've tried it.

Does anyone have a reliable ginger cake recipe, ideally for a loaf tin shape?

Thanks in advance.
