coca cola ginger cake

This delicious little recipe was featured in Tesco Real Food mag. I have since made it twice. It's super easy, super evil and super tasty.

Warning: I will not be held responsible for various weight gain due to the inevitable mass consumption of this cake.


230g self-raising flour
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
1 1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
110g unsalted butter
110g black treacle
110g golden syrup
110g dark brown sugar
140ml milk
45g stem ginger (chopped)
140ml Coca Cola
2 eggs (beaten)

1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200C, fan 180C. Grease and flour a 900g loaf or cake tin.
2.Sift the flour, bicarbonate soda and all spices into a bowl. Rub in the butter so that it resembles breadcrumbs.
3. Melt the treacle and golden syrup in a pan, then leave to cool.
4. In another pan, heat the sugar and the milk, until it dissolves. Stir in the stem ginger and the Coke.
5.Pour into the flour mix, along with the treacle mix and the beaten eggs. Stir to combine.
6. Tip into the tin and bake for 45 mins (or until done). Serve with whipped cream and lemon zest.
