A light and moist ginger sponge, relaxing in a pool of orange creme - a real winter warmer, and a crowd pleaser whenever I bring it to the table at a Christmas party, dinner party, or Sunday lunch. If orange creme doesn't appeal to you, it can also be served with custard, creme fraiche, or even just buttered with a cup of tea.
This is delicious! I left out the cloves and instead of just grating the ginger in, I candied the ginger and some orange zest. Instead of the orange creme, I candied some orange peel and it was a huge hit. Without the creme, we were able to use our hands for cake and it wasn't as messy. Really nice ginger cake! - 08 Sep 2011
Not keen on the orange cream as it was a bit too sweet for me but the ginger pudding is lovely and goes well with both cream and custard. - 27 Feb 2011
