Nowadays a cake is a must for any occasion, such as for birthday, wedding or parties. This Ginger Coffee Cake is good for small gathering or just to satisfy your sweet tooth. It is a typical cake recipe whereby you beat sugar and butter until light and thick. In this recipe I have used only half a cup of butter, additional coffee and yogurt to moisten the batter. In case you don't like coffee, you can add very strong tea instead.
We love the kick of heat the ginger brings to this Ginger Coffee Cake. If ground ginger is not available you can substitute it with 3/4 in of grated fresh ginger that would work too. In future, would double up the ground ginger since the ginger flavor was still quite subtle. Love a fierce gingerly flavor in my cake so am not adding any spice, anything else is a mere distraction
Drizzle over your favorite icing on top of the cake but I like to keep it simple. Embrace the ginger. It can only make you feel better. And what are your other favorite ginger recipes at this time of the year?
