Ginger Cake Recipe | Easy Ginger Cake with Honey

Today I am here with Ginger Cake recipe. Usually ginger cake is made with molasses / treacle, golden syrup and brown sugar. But I have used honey and light brown sugar in this cake. So this is not the usual version of ginger cake. This cake has subtle flavor of ginger and other spices which makes it perfect for the holiday season. This cake is soft and moist and can be served as a snack cake with tea. So if you are looking for a ginger cake without molasses or corn syrup, then this is the cake for you. The warm spices in this cake makes it a perfect snack cake for this season.

  • I have used Light Brown sugar. But using dark brown sugar will yield a beautiful color.
  • I used a 9 inch square pan and my cake was done in about 17 minutes. You can use 8 inch square pan or loaf pan if you have. Based on the pan size, baking time will vary, check accordingly.
  • To check, if the cake is done, insert a cake tester, in the middle of the cake and it has to come out clean.
  • Let the cake cool completely before slicing.
