Birthday Cake

Due to the goings on mentioned in the previous post I have not been doing much of interest over the last week. I did however find the time to eat cake that was the by product of a recent birthday in the house.

This is not your traditional birthday style cake recipe but it is good enough to share. We have deemed it a keeper :)

Ginger & Sour Cream Cake

1.5 cups SR flour
1.5 tsp ground ginger
1.5 cups brown sugar
3 eggs, lightly beaten
180g butter, melted
1/2 cup sour cream

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C. Lightly grease a 23cm round springform cake tin and line the base with non-stick paper.

Sift the flour and ginger into a bowl and stir in sugar. Stir in the eggs and melted butter. Combine to a smooth batter.

Spoon into the prepared tin and smear the sour cream over the top.

Bake 45 min or until lightly browned on top.

Cool for 10 mins in the tin on a rack. Turn out and cool completely before serving.

Enjoy :)


  1. Becky was it your birthday???
    Enjoy the cake - I hope the kids start sleeping better for you soon and if I was handy I'd come and mow your lawn or have a play!
    Hope all is OK with your little man's hearing.
