As promised, here is my recipe for the sticky ginger cake I included in my Post aus Meiner Küche picnic parcel. As it’s name implies, it’s very sticky, and will probably leave you on a major sugar rush, but once you’ve tasted this cake you’ll be baking it again and again. The original recipe for this came from a Sainsbury’s magazine, but I’ve had to some major adjustments to make it gluten free and substitute ingredients not available here in Germany.
*For the molasses, here in Germany I used Zuckerrübensirup (sugar beet syrup). In the UK you could use treacle.
**You can use plain flour instead of gluten free if you don’t have any allergies. It’s not actually a gluten free cake as it includes oats, but it’s wheat free, which serves me well.
Don’t worry if the cake is a bit crumbly, it’s meant to be that way. I find that the middle pieces are always a bit more moist than the edge pieces, and are easier to eat with a fork.
