Sticky Ginger Cake with Jack Daniels Caramel Sauce 

Sticky ginger cake jack Daniels sauce This is exactly what it says on the tin, sweet, sticky, gingery, with a not-so-subtle kick of JD that will have you going back for thirds and fourths (seconds is a given!). 


225g self-raising flour, sieved

1 tsp bicarbonate of soda

2 tsp ground ginger

2 tsp ground cinnamon

115g Flora Cuisine 

115g dark muscovado sugar

115g black treacle

115g golden syrup

250ml semi-skimmed milk

85g stem ginger in syrup finely chopped

1 egg

Jack Daniels Caramel Sauce 

1/4 cup butter 

1/2 cup brown sugar 

1/4 cup double cream 

3-5 tbsp Jack Daniels, depending on your love of JD 


Preheat oven to 160C and line a deep 18cm round cake tin.

1. Combine the flour, bicarbonate of soda and spices into a mixing bowl.

2. Melt Flora with the sugar, treacle, syrup and milk over a gentle heat, until the sugar has dissolved.

3. Add the stem ginger to the flour, pour in the melted ingredients, stir thoroughly, then add the egg and beat together. 

4. Pour the batter into the tin and bake for 50 minutes to 1 hour.

5. Leave to cool completely, using a skewer poke some holes over the cake and pour in 5-6 tbsp of stem ginger syrup. 

6. To make the syrup, heat the sugar and butter on a low heat until the sugar has dissolved. Take off the heat when almost boiling but do not let boil. Stir the cream in off the heat and stir in the Jack Daniels. 

Serve the cake warm with the caramel sauce drizzled on top and cream on the side. 

Enjoy 🙂
