Pinner said One of my favourite cakes ever is the simple ginger cake. Every week we used to always get one of the McVities Jamaica Ginger Cakes. I think it’s the moistness of the cake that really does it, and .
Yorkshire Parkin is a sticky ginger cake made with oats and treacle/molasses. It's lovely on it's own or warm with custard. This cake can be eaten right away, but it benefits from being made in advance so the flavours mature and it gets stickier.
McVities Jamaican Ginger Cake was a childhood winter treat - usually served with a bowlful of hot custard. This version is even more delicious with stem ginger and a sticky ginger glaze to intensify the flavour.
