Ginger Cake

When it is cold and you want something warm for tea there is nothing like a slice of warm ginger cake with butter. I bake mine in a bundt tin. The smell of ginger fills the house. I also serve the cake with warmed custard for dessert.

3 cups flour
3/4 cup castor sugar
3 tsp powdered ginger
1 1/2 tsp mixed spice
1 tsp baking powder
1 cup oil
1 cup syrup
1 cup warm water
3 eggs, well beaten
2 tsp bicarb of soda

Oven 190C 400F
Sift spices, flour, sugar and baking powder. Make a well in the centre and fold in the oil, syrup, warm water, beaten egg and lastly the bicarb which has been dissolved in a little warm water. Beat in a mix master at low speed for 8 minutes. Pour into a well greased bundt tin or a large well greased tube tin. Bake for 55-60 minutes till a skewer inserted into cake comes out clean.

This is really good served with stewed apples.
