Did you guess what I did with the 2 pounds of ginger yet? 🙂
At first, I had no clue! I was walking in the market areas of Chinatown one day and an entire stand was selling beautiful fresh ginger for $1.00 – 2 pounds! I’m not one to ever buy ginger, but I recently was trying to eat more healthy so I figure hey, why not cook and drink more things with ginger in it? I wanted to only buy 1 piece, but the vendor stuffed my bag until it was full and said “It’s only $1.00 – take the whole bag.” So there. I now had an entire bag of ginger sitting in my fridge.
I wasn’t sure what to do with them besides make hot ginger drinks, so I did some searching on my Pinterest, and found this highly rated recipe for a Ginger cake from Epicurious. The result was a super fluffy, strong ginger-tasting 9×9″ cake that stayed moist for at least 5 days! I had taken photos, but with this kitchen and lighting, it’s just not worth posting – so instead, check out the recipe! My only modifications were the exclusion of ground cloves and black pepper. I also used ¾ cups of sugar instead of one cup. Hellooo, healthiness!
If you try out the recipe, let me know what you think 🙂 xoxo
