“The key ingredients to this cake are the cinnamon and ginger, which add a warm welcoming spicy flavor. Especially delightful when served with vanilla ice cream, yoghurt or crème fraiche. This recipe is loosely adapted from Bob’s Red Mill Baking Book by John Ettinger and Bob’s Red Mill Family, 2007.”
