About this recipe: This gingerbread loaf cake oozes Christmas! Combined with banana, it is irresistibly moist and incredibly spiced. The vanilla glaze makes all the difference.
I have just made this cake for the second time to take to a cake club. It is a great family cake, very moist and incredibly spicy. I used light soft brown sugar as that was all I had in the pantry but kept the recipe otherwise the same. It keeps very well and the banana just seems to add extra depth rather than coming over too strongly. I made it in a round deep cake tin and cooked it for 70 mins. Has to be the best ginger cake I have ever tasted. - 19 Oct 2014
This is a delicious tasting cake. I had no treacle and used syrup and light brown sugar instead of the dark brown. I kept all the spices the same. The vanilla glaze icing was beautiful. I baked the cake in two 1 lb loaf tins for an hour. I will definitely be baking this cake again - 10/10. This would be a lovely afternoon treat for visitors. - 18 Mar 2013
