Honey, ginger and oat cake

It’s a rainy day and amongst the admin work I have time to cobble together an experimental cake. This one is a little like the tray bake Yorkshire parkin and a little like the Jewish honey loaf made for Rosh Hashanah – which begins this weekend.

It’s not made to be looked at – I don’t worry about such things! Mix it like muffin ingredients – loosely and quickly then bung in the oven.

It’s also vegan!

You will need:

A greased tin

Dry ingredients:

1 cup of oats

1 cup of a plain flour – GF or not

1 cup of rice flour

2 tsps of mixed spice

Chopped fresh ginger – however much you like

2 tsps baking powder

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

Wet ingredients:

1 tblsp clear honey

2 tblsps golden syrup

1 tblsp vegan margarine

1 cup of water

Do what’s necessary and there should be a sweet, dense cake filled with the flavour and aroma of ginger.

Or nip over to the Lake District …
