Makes – 1 bundt cake | Preparation time – 10 minutes | Cooking time – 1HR- 1.10HRS minutes
300g unsalted butter
50g butter to generously grease mould with
300g black treacle
450g dark muscovado sugar
8 balls of stem ginger – finely diced
5 tbsp stem ginger syrup
3 large free-range eggs – beaten
300g plain flour
1.5 tsp bicarbonate of soda
1 tbs ground ginger
1 heaped tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mace or nutmeg
300ml natural yogurt
Cream Cheese frosting –
70g butter – softened
280g full fat cream cheese
130g icing sugar
finely grated zest of 1 large orange
Additional toppings –
2 handfuls of toasted coconut flakes
Preheat the oven to 180 degrees Celsius on the intensive bake function. Generously grease each bundt tin and set to one side.
Combine the butter, treacle and sugar over a medium to low heat cooking until the butter has melted then add in the stem ginger, stem ginger syrup and eggs. Whisk until thoroughly combined.
Sift the flour, add the bicarbonate of soda and add in the dried spices. Next pour in the butter, syrup mixture and beat together with a whisk before finally adding in the yogurt . Whisk again until fully combined.
Pour the mixture into the mould and bake for around 1-1.10hr or until a knife comes out clean when you slice into the cake. Once it’s cooled a little, turn out of the mould and allow to cool on a wire rack. Don’t add the frosting until the cake has cooled completely.
For the frosting first combine the cream cheese with softened butter, whisking until thoroughly combined then add in the icing sugar and whisk again until you have a smooth consistency with no lumps. Add in the zest and generously cover your cake.
Lightly toast your coconut flakes until slightly golden and allow to cool before scattering or arranging over the frosting.
