I have been playing with this recipe for a while now and by Jove! I've finally got it right.
Jamaican Ginger Cake
makes 1 loaf
3 ripe bananas, mashed
half a cup of vegan butter
half a cup of dark brown sugar
quarter cup coconut milk
quarter cup treacle (molasses)
quarter cup golden syrup
1 teaspoon vanilla essence1 and a half inch piece of fresh ginger, minced (about 1 and a half Tablespoons)
1 and a half cups of self raising flour
half a teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 Tablespoon arrowroot
1 Tablespoon cornflour
For the drizzle
eighth of a cup of treacle
eighth of a cup of golden syrup
Heat the oven to 180 degrees (350 fahrenheit) and grease and line a loaf pan.
In a mixing bowl cream together the bananas, butter and sugar, use an electric mixer if you have one. Add the coconut milk, treacle, golden syrup and vanilla. Mix together really well.
Take another bowl and sift together the flour, salt, baking soda, arrowroot and cornflour then add this to the other bowl with the wet ingredients.
Stir really well then pour into your prepared loaf pan and bake in the middle of the oven for one hour.
Make holes in the top of the cake with a toothpick, heat together the treacle and syrup and pour over the cake as soon as it comes out of the oven.
Leave to cool.
