This deliciously dense, spicy ginger loaf recipe was given to us by Jon who is our personal IT go-to-guy, or so we like to think. Like Pete, Jon also makes great coffee and somehow or other, every morning without fail, I am lucky to be on the receiving end of one of his delicious coffees. Jon has a great sense of humour and you know that when he’s around there will always be something to laugh about, however controversial or risqué it might be!
Jon and I often chat about food and cooking and from our conversations it transpires that Jon has a penchant for baking bread. His recent endeavours have seen him experimenting with sourdough bread and starters, some of which I hope he will share with me. He is also keen to feature another of his recipes on the blog, this time for BBQ bread, a quick easy recipe which I hear never fails to impress the guests.
A little bit about Jon’s recipe in his own words.
Nobody seems knows where this recipe came from. My wife has a handwritten copy that we have slightly modified to make two loaves. It may have come from a playcentre fundraising book of recipes some time ago. I love smearing slices of this cake with butter and settling down with a large glass of ginger beer. This is the cake my wife makes when we go on holiday as it can handle the journey and is a great snack.
