BAKE AT HOME | Jamaican Ginger Loaf Cake | Cupcake Jemma

Make lockdown a little bit sweeter with this fool proof recipe for one of my favourite home bakes! This Jamaican Ginger Loaf Cake is perfectly moist, dense and moreish and the best thing of all is that it’s so easy to make! (Oh, and your house will smell AMAZING). Serve it warm with custard or ice cream or slather it in butter! This recipe also keeps really well if stored in an air-tight container for a few days!

Make sure you take photos of your bakes and tag me so I can see what you are up to! @sallydells and use the tag #cupcakejemma

Stay safe, look after yourselves and have fun baking!

    Sally could I substitute with gluten free plain flour? Would I need to add xanthum gum ? Also would it alter the cooking time , I always find using gf flour things take longer to cook . Christine

    Made this cake and it was the best ginger cake ever. I put some of the syrup over but was cautious in case it was too soapy but I should have put more. We had it with butter and custard. Lovely. I am making it again this weekend. Will try and take a photo but technology may defeat me. Make this cake you will love it

  3. Patricia Clarke says:

    Thank you Sally for sharing this recipe…I made it and it turned out lovely….Gonna make some for my friends but was curious as to if you can freeze once cooled? as I won’t see them for a while due to lockdown 🤔

  4. Becky Shepherd says:

    Was so pleased as I’m dairy free and tried this with soya milk and it still came out amazing 😀

  5. dgmoocher D r says:

    I made this. I didn't like it. 2 days later the flavors melded. I ate the entire thing. But not before first covering it in a layer of cream cheese and powdered sugar.

  6. Khushboo Bothra says:

    I love Ur cake recipe but also provide some alternative because I am vegetarian

    Do you think that 160 (no fan assisted) is too high? I have a gas fired stove.

  10. Shifat Maria says:

    I'd made this cake for my Dad, few days back, to celebrate his 57th Birthday. I was kinda confused if we would like the taste of it or not ( since it's kinda different than general cake flavors). Now I have to say, THANK YOU SO MUCH to CupcakeJemma & the team members for this amazing cake recipe!! This 'Jamaican Ginger Loaf Cake' is worth to try.
    Love & best wishes from Bangladesh!!!

  21. Janani A says:

    Made this a few days ago and it was delicious! Had no treacle so just used golden syrup and reduced the dark sugar just a little as well. Skipped the drizzle but it was perfect with a nice cuppa tea. It was all finished within a few hours!
