Today I made a cinnamon and ginger cake with lemon icing.
4oz sugar
4oz butter
2 eggs
good old shake of cinnamon and ginger.
8oz self raising flour
some hot water that had sat in a mug with a couple of cloves for a while, to mix
That doesn't look like enough cinnamon & ginger, stick in an extra teaspoon of each for luck.
Stir it all together until it makes a sort of thick batter, splat into 2 cake tins.
190 degrees C until a knife comes out clean from the middle.

Zest a lemon & add lemon juice & icing sugar to some butter, stir like a demon till it looks about right, use to sandwich the cooled cakes & decorate the top.

Didn't rise as much as I'd expected but was very delicious and moist.

Mmmmm, sounds delicious. And your method of measuring the spices is remarkably similar to mine!

Gawd, I wouldn't mind gate-crashing your house for tea and cookies...
