It’s a rainy day and amongst the admin work I have time to cobble together an experimental cake. This one is a little like the tray bake Yorkshire parkin and a little like the Jewish honey loaf made for Rosh Hashanah – which begins this weekend.
It’s not made to be looked at – I don’t worry about such things! Mix it like muffin ingredients – loosely and quickly then bung in the oven.
It’s also vegan!
You will need:
A greased tin
1 cup of oats
1 cup of a plain flour – GF or not
1 cup of rice flour
2 tsps of mixed spice
Chopped fresh ginger – however much you like
2 tsps baking powder
1 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tblsp clear honey
2 tblsps golden syrup
1 tblsp vegan margarine
1 cup of water
Do what’s necessary and there should be a sweet, dense cake filled with the flavour and aroma of ginger.
Or nip over to the Lake District …
