recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • 225 gms flour
  • 1 tbsp corn flour
  • 1 t/s salt
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 2 eggs
  • 200 gms unsalted butter / clarified butter
  • 2 tbsp rum (optional)
  • 125 gms caster sugar / brown sugar / powdered sugar
  • 3 heaped tbsp of cocoa powder
  • 2 tbsp honey Or molasses
  • 1 tbsp dry ginger powder (soonth)
  • 1 tbsp cinnamon powder
  • ½ tbsp clove powder
How to make the recipe?
  1. Preheat oven at 180° exactly twenty mins before baking. Grease round pan with butter and place a parchment paper.
  2. Sift flour, corn flour, salt, baking powder, cocoa powder, dry ginger powder, cinnamon powder and clove powder.
  3. Cream butter and sugar into a mixing bowl until soft and fluffy.
  4. Make a small well in the sifted flour add beaten butter and sugar mixture. Add the eggs, honey and rum. Fold the batter gently.
  5. Bake at 180°C for 50 mins to an hour Or until the skewer comes out clean.
  6. It's important to allow the cake to cool down completely before inverting the pan. Best would be to place in the fridge and after 2 to 3 hrs invert the pan.
  7. In the meanwhile prepare whipped cream. Spread all over the cake and decorate with colorful candies.
  8. Slice and serve the chocolate ginger bread warm Or chilled.
Notes
1. It's important to allow the cake to cool down completely. In case it's not coming out just cut on the edges around the mould. Immerse the mould half way in ice water. This should help the cake to invert easily.
2. Once the cake is baked keep in the oven only for some more time. This would help in giving a nice crusty exterior to your cake.
