How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Combine flour, sugar, cinnamon and ground ginger together , cut in butter.
  • Set aside 1/4 cup of the crumble mixture for topping.
  • Add beaten eggs to the rest of the mixture. Set aside 2 T of the chopped ginger for garnish and put the remainder into the mixture along with the molasses.
  • In a cup stir together the milk and the salt. Add the lemon juice and stir. Let sit a minute the dissolve the baking soda in the milk and quickly add to the flour mixture.
  • Mix well until a very nice batter consistency emerges. Pour into greased 9" pan. I grease mine with ghee instead of butter to prevent burning.
  • Sprinkle with reserved topping and if you will not be using the garnish of whipping cream - also the reserved ginger. Bake for 35 to 40 minutes till wooden skewer comes out relatively clean.
  • Serve warm with whipped cream or just scarf down plain.
  • I highly recommend serving it with plain steamed milk, a latte or a chai latte.
  • As this cake bakes your kitchen will fill with a constantly changing aroma - buttery, cinnamon, ginger - I was amazed how many different scents wafted up from this relatively simple cake.

    well. I thought I remembered my version of the recipe and instead of signing on and checking my own variation I made it up from the side of the box ....last time I do THAT - I forgot about the molasses - CRUCIAL and the fact I increased the liquid and changed it and I lowered the sugar - wow - what a difference. I hate to toot my own horn but the side of the box recipe - though good, is not even close to my own version. Must get another box and make this version soon.
