Boscobel Beach Ginger Cake Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 7)
Reviewed: May 19, 2003
This cake is fantastic! It just dances on your tongue! It was so moist! This is not your typical ginger cake--there is no molasses. So it is a nice light cake with lots of ginger sparkle. And I didn't even add the fresh ginger the recipe called for--just the powdered ginger. It was quite a hit with my guests. I made an orange glaze for the cake, but really...it was pointless. One: it didn't need any embellishment, and two: the orange taste was totally overruled by the ginger flavor. Go the powedered sugar route as she says. Thank you Margorita Whyte for a wonderful recipe!!

I tweaked the recipe a bit, so maybe that's why it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped-- I used fresh ground ginger (paste-form) instead of dried and grated ginger, and perhaps I didn't have enough of it. I also used honey for part of the brown sugar. I think I should've used more, because the flavor just wasn't there-- kind of a bland cake. Apart from that, I used applesauce instead of half the butter, and substituted two egg whites for one of the eggs. Texture of the cake came out fine, so at least you can reduce the fat without problems. I think I'll put a honey-lemon glaze on it and hope it enhances the flavor...

You gotta love ginger! I was able to convert this recipe to a milk/butter, egg, wheat-free recipe. Got rave reviews from attendees at my baby's 2 year birthday party. And baby-kins loves the cake as well! I used a bundt pan but had to bake it for slightly over an hour. Dusted w/ powdered sugar and a good cup of coffee....a nice finish to any meal!

If you love fresh ginger, this is the ginger-cake for you! It differs from Gingerbread in that it is not so dark; it is more golden colored, and does not have any molasses. But the fresh ginger taste is strong and wonderful. I topped the cake with whipped cream. Also I used a large glass baking dish and baked using convection oven at 325 for 30-35 minutes. Sue Alice
