Love this post so much! Noisette had me with “this cake is mature, classy and fiery!”
Continuing with my new found love of tray bakes, the next cake I tried from Cake Keeper Cakes was Chocolate Gingerbread. Push any milk chocolate, sickly, children’s party tray bake out of your head immediately, this cake is mature, classy and fiery. As I said in my post ‘Maple Gingerbread Cake’, this reminds me of one of my favourite series of books ‘The Gingerbread Cafe trilogy – Rebecca Raisin‘ (oh the life envy I have of Lily, one of the central characters, in fact I’m pretty sure this cake would have been one of Lily’s favourites, she too was classy and fiery).
I’m pretty excited to tweak this cake and swap the treacle for golden syrup, perhaps a little less black pepper in that one as golden syrup isn’t as intense as treacle (yes, you heard right, black pepper!), maybe some fresh ginger too or more…
