I have a "cheats quick" recipe which is fab but uses a shop bought Jamaican ginger cake if you are interested - everyone I have given it too has taken recipe.

For the sauce:
50g/2oz butter
110g/4oz golden syrup
110g/4oz soft brown sugar
150ml/5 fl oz double cream
few drops vanilla extract (NOT essence)

+ 1 shop bought rectangular ginger cake (McVities is good)

Preheat oven to 190 C/ 325F / Gas mark 5

To make sauce, put everything except vanilla & cream into a small, heavy based saucepan. Leave over a moderate heat until the sugar has disolved then turn up heat slightly & let bubble away quietly for 5 mins - no more! Add vanilla extract. Pour in the cream, it will froth a little. Give a good stir & set aside to cool slightly.

Cut the cake into 8 thick slices. Place into a small deep baking dish & pour the sauce over them. Put in pre-heated oven & leave for 15 mins until sauce bubbling & cake soggy with sauce.

Serve hot with cream./ice cream

Delias recipe is THE BEST!

Nigella Lawson's recipe from Nigella Bites is really easy and makes it's own sauce.

Here that saves raking the book out.

All sounds like too much hard work to me!

Use McVitie's Jamaican Ginger Cake cut into generous rounds, lay in an oven proof dish, and for the sauce, soak some plump raisins ( Waitrose Love Life for preference) in rum or brandy and gently heat with a jar of Bonne Maman Caramel Spread and enough single cream to get a nice runny consistency. Save the rest of the cream for pouring.
You can make this the day before and then warm through for a few minutes in the oven whilst you are tucking into your main course.
