Mix all together, then add the boiling water.
Bake in a moderate BBQ (or oven), which was 175ish degrees celcuis for me.
Notes on this recipe:
I actually did not read this recipe properly or follow the instructions very accurately.
I was running ingredients down from my pantry and had about those quantities left in everything. Then I completely missed the last note which reads 'add 1/2 cup boiling water' at the end.
So I added another egg because the mixture just looked weird and too dry then decided to call it 'caramel' ginger cake.
It gets even funnier... Because I started cooking too late In the arvo and dinner had to go in the BBQ so I had to move the cake to the top shelf and in the process my cake sunk! .....TRADGEDY!
But my sillyness doesn't end there, I guess it goes to show that if you trust your instincts you can still create a tasty winner and as such I forgot to take a photo of the whole cake, so this is all I had left to take a picture and show you my awesome tasting, although sunken cake.
