Ginger Cream Cake

A Quick, sweet treat for your family or holiday guests

I make a mean Ginger Bread but have decided to try a Ginger cream cake today with LOADS of sweetened, vanilla flavored fresh whipped cream.

This recipe made a single layer cake, but you can easily get 6 servings from it - or double the recipe, use the whipped cream as a filling and dust the top with Icing Sugar!

We had a fairly rich dinner and this was perfect to top it off.

Ginger Cream Cake


3 TB Butter, softened
1/2 cup Caster Sugar
2 Eggs
1 TB Golden Syrup (or Maple Syrup)
1 cup Self-Raising Flour
1 1/2 t Ground Ginger
1/2 cup Milk
1/2 t Bicarbonate of Soda

1/2 cup Fresh Cream
1 t Vanilla
2 TB Caster Sugar


1.) Pre-heat the oven to 180 deg C (350 deg F) - Spray a 20 cm cake pan with cooking oil and line the bottom with baking paper.
2.) Cream the Butter and Sugar together - add the Eggs one by one - mixing in between - add the Syrup and mix well.
3.) Sift the Flour and Ground Ginger together - fold in with the Sugar mixture.
4.) Combine the Milk and Bicarbonate of Soda - add to the batter - mix in gently.
5.) Pour batter into the prepared cake pan - bake 30 - 35 minutes until a tester comes out clean.

Remove cake from the oven - leave in pan for 5 minutes - transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before topping with the whipped cream.

Whipped Vanilla flavored Cream

Whip the Fresh Cream until stiff - add the Vanilla and Caster Sugar - whip some more - you want a really stiff cream {but be careful not to whip it into a creamed butter stage...}.

Once the cake has completely cooled - spread or pipe the whipped cream on top of the cake and serve immediately.



  1. Too funny; I just commented on your Chocolate Salami that I had clicked on from Pamela's Heavenly Treats, and here you are again! This is another lovely recipe.

  2. I have been told I am a no-reply blogger. I don't want to be a no-reply blogger, Help please.
    I am going to make this cake soon because it looks so delicious. I am wondering if golden syrup is corn syrup in America.
    I saw your link on Heavenly Sunday.
