I’m in love with this Ginger Beer Date Cake recipe. It’s packed with ginger flavour, with a whole cup of ginger beer inside, pieces of crystallised ginger, as well as ground ginger. Pureed dates make this cake so moist and delicious. It’s topped with a cream cheese frosting made with brown sugar and extra ginger.
You’ll have your friends and family fighting for this recipe once they taste it.
It’s quite a tall cake for a single layer, so I’d suggest cutting it in half horizontally and sandwiching the two pieces with extra cream cheese frosting. Make a double batch if you do so. Otherwise, it’s still great as a one-layer cake. I topped mine with a dusting of cinnamon and some extra pieces of crystallised ginger.
I made sure to use Australian Bundaberg Ginger Beer in my cake. And I’m not being paid to say that, I just love how intensely spicy their ginger beer is compared to other brands. I also paired it with Buderim Ginger Crystallised Ginger pieces.
