I have made this cake three times in the last month. Not just because I like it. Because I am greedy and forgetful.
I baked it the first time because I was visiting some friends who recently had a baby. I forgot to take a picture of it before I cut it. No matter, I had plenty of ingredients left. I’d make another next week.
I did just that. Despite having consumed most of the last cake, I had not tired of it. In fact, I was so keen for a slice when it came out of the oven that I completely forgot why I’d baked it again and cut it before I got the chance to take a picture.
Round three. Same story. Ridiculous, but true.
More ridiculous is the fact that I just spent the last half an hour taking photos of the recipe book instead so that I could post this blimmin’ thing and upon creating a folder called ‘Ginger and spice cake’ found that one already existed. 10 photos of the cake itself from the first time I made it last year. Sods law.
