“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!!”
