A suitable cake for a mother-to-be
This weekend we had a couple of old friends over; Duncan and Reena. We had a lovely time together catching up. It's exciting times as Reena is expecting their first child later this summer. So with that in mind I decided to make a cake that would be suitable for the delicate stomach that trouble most expectant mothers in that first trimester. The result was a Chocolate & Ginger Cake. I adapted a regular favourite of mine, the Nigella Lawson Store-Cupboard Chocolate-Orange Cake, replacing the orange marmalade with ginger preserve. Served with a dollop of creme fraiche it was perfect, just like the company.
