Quick and Easy Ginger Maple Loaf Cake

I have been producing weeks worth of ginger cake loaves for the family to eat in the hope of finding a quick and simple go to recipe like my banana bread.  Well after a few attempts, it’s here to share.   I wanted this recipe to be made just using a handful of store cupboard ingredients I always have to hand, unlike many other ginger cakes.  I also wanted on that was gingery but also not too dark and spicy that the kids turn their noses up.  I was seeking a gingerbread man taste but with a moist cake consistency.

So without further ado here is my new go to favourite Autumnal bake

  1. I have only ever made this cake in my own fan oven, so if you're using a non fan oven just keep an eye on the extra cooking time and adjust accordingly.
  2. This cake can be enjoyed by both adults and children as its a lighter moist ginger loaf bake.
  3. Its also weirdly nice with a bit of butter spread over it!
