Jamaican Ginger Cake

Thanks to all this damp and misty weather, Landcroft House is currently going through an afternoon tea and cake obsession. Here's today's simple offering. I like the last minute addition of a sticky orange glaze but it isn't very authentic and traditional Jamaican ginger cake often has grated root ginger in for a bit of heat - try adding some if you fancy it.
Serves 10
175g butter
175g light brown or muscovado sugar
175g black treacle
250g plain flour
11/2 tsp bicarbonate of soda
2 - 3 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
200ml milk
2 eggs
finely grated zest and juice of 1 orange
50g caster sugar

1 Preheat the oven to 180C / Gas 4. Melt then butter, brown sugar and treacle together in a pan.
Scrape into a bowl and add the flour, bicarb, spices, milk, eggs and orange zest and beat with a hand-held whisk for a couple of minutes until smooth.

2 Pour into a lined tin (mine was 20cm x 26cm) and bake for 30 - 40 minutes.

3 While the cake is baking, squeeze the orange juice into a small bowl, add the caster sugar, stir well together and set aside.

4 Take the cake out of the oven, drizzle over the orange sugar and leave to cool before cutting.

Laugier knows his classics and does not hide his sources of inspiration (Tobe Hooper, Robert Aldrich, Rob Zombie in particular). watch movies 2k Ghostland is however much less original and radical than Martyrs. megashare9 And the film recycles elementary visual artifices and unproductive jumpscares: annoying and almost insulting. los movies Let's move on to the pitch that serves as the basis for the film, which does not bother logic or credibility. 123movies Laugier first looks to shock the viewer and, obviously, seen the comments on the web, seems to achieve it without I can't understand why. zmovies I mean, since Hostel, horror cinema has largely gone around the topic of sequestration. Also, once the rather good surprise of the middle of the film passed, Ghostland doesn't innovate really, in spite of its graphic universe too clean to be really disturbing.
