Gluten Free Recipe: Triple Ginger Cake with Grand Marnier

Triple Ginger Gluten-free Cake

Not One, Not Two, But Three Types of Ginger!

This delicious gluten-free cake has a warm spicy flavour from its three types of ginger – fresh, crystallised and dried. The flavour improves when the cake is kept for a few days, so it is great as a bake ahead treat.

This recipe is based on the Ginger Butter Cake in Williams-Sonoma “Essentials of baking” p 100.

Ingredients

140g crystallised ginger, minced
80ml Grand Marnier
250g gf flour (40%urid, 40% tapioca, 20% cornmeal)
3 tsp baking powder
2 tsp ground ginger
185g unsalted butter, room temperature
150g icing sugar
1 tbsp golden or agave syrup
4 large eggs, at room temperature
Grated zest 1 orange
7.5cm piece of fresh ginger, grated
125 ml milk

 

Triple Ginger Gluten-free Cake

You can bake ahead of time as the flavour improves by the next day

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 170C (fan) (338F)
Line 2 small or one large loaf tin with baking parchment

Soak the minced crystallised ginger in a bowl with the Grand Marnier for at least ten minutes.

Sift together dry ingredients.

Combine butter, sugar and syrup and beat by hand or mixer until light and fluffy.  Beat in eggs one at a time. Add orange zest and grated ginger.  Stir in flour mixture, milk and crystallised ginger in Grand Marnier.

Spread batter into tins.  Bake until the cake is set when you insert a knife – about 40 minutes for small tins, 55 for the larger tin. If the cake is getting too brown while it still isn’t cooked lower the heat.

Cool in the pan for five minutes then turn out onto a cooling rack.  Cover with a damp towel if you want the outside to stay soft when it cools – otherwise you get a slightly crisp edge.

Dust with icing sugar if desired.
