In the previous post, Summer shared with us how to give to children through a cookbook called Feed Our Small World. The post was called Season of Giving Day 18: The Recipe for FEED[ing] Our Small World. You should check it out and all the other Season of giving posts for this month. She also shared one of the recipes from the book here. Here’s a taste of the FEED Our Small World Cookbook coming to you from Jamaica:
Island Breeze Ginger Cake Recipe
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground all spice
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
½ cup butter, softened
½ cup packed brown sugar
½ cup molasses
2 Tablespoons peeled and finely grated fresh ginger
1 large egg
1/3 cup hot water
1. Ask an adult to help you heat the oven to 350 oF. Lightly butter an 8-inch-square baking pan and dust it with flour.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and the 5 dry spices.
3. In a large mixing bowl, use an electric mixer to cream the butter and sugar, Beat in the molasses and grated fresh ginger. Then beat in the egg.
4. Beat half of the flour mixture into the butter mixture. Add the water and beat again. Finally, add the remaining flour mixture and beat just until mixed in.
5. Spread the batter in the prepared pan and bake it until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 30 to 35 minutes. Cool the cake in the pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes. Then remove the cake from the pan to finish cooling.
