“I have tried your ginger cake mix and although the family liked it decided to experiment and this last week made the mix but included the zest of a lime finely grated and the juice of the lime and 2oz preserved ginger cut into small pieces. It has been a major success and some went to a coffee morning where i was asked for the recipe several times!!”

This tangy pud is made in minutes and a perfect winter warming dish. Lovely for dessert after Sunday lunch. Best served hot with custard although of all the times I have made it, it was never allowed to go cold!
