Gingerbread cake


  • In a pot, add the orange juice, sugar, honey, and the zests.
  • Place it over medium heat, and let the mixture heat up.
  • When the sugar melts, remove from the heat and set it aside to cool.
  • In a bowl, mix the solid ingredients (flour, baking powder, baking soda, ginger, salt) and then, add the liquid mixture by mixing with a spatula.
  • Lastly, add the melted butter and let the mixture cool.
  • Preheat the oven to 140°C (284° F) set to fan.
  • In a non-stick 20x30 cm baking pan (or in a simple baking pan lined with parchment paper) add the mixture, which should have a 1-1,5 cm thickness.
  • Bake for 30 minutes, until it gets slightly golden. You will know when it is ready if you stick a toothpick inside, and it comes out clean.
  • Take it out of the oven, set it on a rack to cool completely, and then cut it into pieces.

For the frosting:

  • In a mixer’s bowl, beat the cream cheese with the paddle attachment at medium speed, until fluffy.
  • Add the honey and keep beating until there is a uniform mixture.
  • Remove the bowl from the mixer, and with a spoon spread the frosting onto the cake pieces. 
  • Sprinkle with the ground ginger, and serve.
