Ginger Cake Recipe
This ginger cake is absolutely divine. The combination of fresh ginger, dried ginger and the crystallised ginger creates a very warming and spicy cake, perfect for all ginger fans. I’ve used a special combination of gluten-free flours: potato starch, buckwheat flour, brown-rice flour and almond meal. That creates a really light and fluffy cake that doesn’t taste or look gluten-free at all. You’ll be able to buy these flours at your local health food store or a bulk food store.
