Super Moist Gingerbread Cake Recipe - Gingerbread Snacking Cake Recipe

I have been eyeing on this cake for quite sometime ever since i came across in nigella christmas cookbook. I wanted to try it so badly finally i made in couple days back. I don't know about you, but I have a addiction towards spiced cakes. Spices works beautiful in baked goodies specially in cakes. And this is the answer for that.

The cake is just perfect, you can never get better recipe than this. The cake is so moist, light and mildly spiced and delicious..It tasted wonderful warm, enjoy it with some whipped cream or just a dusting of some icing sugar. So good for this time of the year..

Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..

Recipe Source:


All Purpose Flour / Maida - 1 1/4 cup / 150 grams
Baking Powder - 1.5 tsp
Baking Soda / Cooking Soda - 1/2 tsp

Water - 3/4 cup / 180 ml



Preheat oven to 160 degree C. Line a 20 cm square baking pan with parchment paper and grease it well with oil. Set aside.

In a sauce pan, take 1/2 cup of water and bring it to a boil. Take it off the heat and add in honey and mix well. Now add in baking soda and mix well. Now add in 1/4 cup of water and mix well. Set aside so it gets cold.

Now In another bowl, add flour, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, ginger and mix well. Set aside.

In another bowl, take oil, jaggery or brown sugar and mix well. Add in egg and whisk well.

Now add in half of the flour mix in and fold gently. Now add in all the honey mix and mix well.Add in the remaining flour and mix well.
