Using fresh, ground and crystallised ginger gives this ginger cake an extra rich flavour.
I made this cake today and it just didnt cook through not even after an additional 20 mins in oven - 23 Oct 2011

So so so good! The candied ginger is what did it for me. If you can't find it, don't worry! It's very easy (and cheap) to make. Here's what I did: bring 1 1/3C sugar and 1C water to a boil. Add 1C chopped, peeled ginger and simmer for 20 minutes. Drain, dry and sprinkle with sugar. It's quite strong when eated alone but when baked into this bread, it just adds a super rich flavor and a fun chewy texture. - 10 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
