Maple Glazed Gingerbread Cakes

These Maple Glazed Gingerbread Cakes with are a delicious little bake that has all the warm, cosy feel of winter with the rich mix of wonderful spices. I have made mine in a Nordicware Heritage Bundtlette tin that holds 6. It measures 4″ across. You could also use a silicone bundt mould which would make 12 cakes. They usually measure about 2.5″ / 3″ across the top.

Silicone will take longer to bake than a metal tin so that’s worth noting. Also, you should only fill your tin about 2/3rd way up and leave them to sit in the tin for at least 10 minutes before attempting to remove them. If you follow my tips for preparing the tin, they will simply slip out!

The recipe seems to have a lot of ingredients and please don’t let that put you off. It’s mainly all the spices.

Light & Delicious Ginger Cake


So I know there seems to be an excess of ginger related recipes happening now but I have a tin of treacle that’s about to run out and a tub of bicarbonate of soda that has a “use before” date drawing near so I’m using them up with my ginger recipes. If you don’t like ginger, I apologise in advance 😉

This is a light and moist ginger cake which is just so delicious. It’s made in a brownie tin or you can make it in a 2lb loaf tin, with a few tweaks in baking time. Oh did I mention no mixer? Yes I love a recipe that just literally needs mixing and no equipment.

Oh the smell in the house! Seriously, the smell was heavenly and just full of comfort. It was like Christmas was bottled and let loose at ours.

Cranberry & Orange Loaf Cake

This is a delicious sweet orange flavoured loaf bread which is dotted with fresh cranberries and drizzled with an orange glaze to finish. It makes a great gift as it looks so pretty!

If you’re keeping it for yourself, you can omit the orange glaze but there is something quite heavenly about a slice with a burst of sweetness.

Even though it does take just over an hour in the oven, it’s so simple to make that you can busy yourself with something else while you smell the delicious aroma. It’s such a versatile recipe and can be used at breakfast, brunch, for a dessert … well you get the idea 😉
