I made this cake for breakfast and it was so easy, you have to put all the ingredients in one bowl and beat them then bake the cake. It was so moist and had that wonderful flavors of golden syrup and the spices.

Let’s make Ginger Spice Cake:

5, 6. Beat on low speed until just combined. Increase speed to medium. Beat for about 3 minutes, or until smooth and changed in color. Pour into pan.

7. Cook in a moderate oven 356 °F (180 °C) for about 45 minutes, or until cooked when tested (cover loosely with foil during cooking if over-browning). Stand cake in pan for 5 minutes before turning onto a wire rack to cool.

Notes and Tips

Buttermilk Substitute (Source: About.com): Milk (just under one cup) + 1 tbsp lemon juice or white vinegar.
Method of making buttermilk substitute: Place a tablespoon of lemon juice or white vinegar in a liquid measuring cup. Add enough milk to bring the liquid up to the one-cup line. Let stand for five minute. Then, use as much as your recipe calls for.

I didn’t have self raising flour so I followed this rule: for each 1 cup all purpose flour, add 1 1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt, mix to combine, so for my measurements they said 1/2 cup self raising flour and I used 1/2 cup all purpose flour + 3/4 tsp baking powder + 3/4 tsp salt.

I used 1 1/4 tsp ginger, but for my taste I felt that it needs more ginger (it may become pungent), so it’s up to you, you can just stick to the recipe.

I didn’t have mixed spice so I used 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/2 tsp nutmeg.
