Oh wow! I forgot about this board for almost forever!!
I am hoping someone here can help me. I've been looking for a ginger dessert recipe my late grandmother made for us every Christmas. She mixed a ginger batter which she then poured into a dish that had hot water, sugar ?, ginger ? and then baked it. The batter rose over the hot water mixture which formed a ginger sauce at the bottom. Please someone out there help!! I've been looking for this recipe for more than 8 years.
That sounds interesting.... Your grandmother made it? I have one VERY old cookbook (published during WWI) that might have a recipe for that in it. I'll try to remember to look there tonight, but don't have time right now as I'm *supposed* to get getting ready for work right now....
Ginger Self Saucing Pudding
1 1/2 cups self-raising flour
1/2 Tablespoon of ground ginger
1/2 Tablespoon fresh ginger, thickly grated
2/3 cup sugar
2 Tbsp margarine, melted
1 cup skim milk
2 Tbsp ground ginger(or less if you prefer a subtle taste)
3/4 cup sugar
1 1/4 cups boiling water
Preheat oven to 180ºC.
Grease a 2 litre ovenproof dish.
Sift flour and ground ginger into large
bowl, stir in sugar.
Whisk together egg, margarine and milk.
Add to dry ingredients,
Add fresh ginger stir gently until just combined.
Spread pudding mixture evenly into dish.
To prepare Sauce: dissolve ground ginger
and sugar in boiling water, pour over pudding.
Bake for 35–40 minutes, until cooked.
lovely served with cream or ice cream or alternatively cook in a large cake round cake pan, once cooked leave to go cold in tin and then turn out on to a dish for an incredible up-side down cake
Cazz, this sounds right....have you made it? If you have, does the hot water mixture sink to the bottom of the dish? I remember my grandmother making the sauce in the dish she baked it in then simply pouring the batter into the hot water without mixing the two.
yes the sauce forms at the bottom.
you place the batter in the dish and then pour the sugar mixture over the batter. You dont mix it
but the sauce forms at the bottom
I know! Thanks, she'd make it every Christmas without fail, in the middle of the heat, with ice cream! YUMMY!!! I'll give this one a try.
I am wondering if you tried it.
Was it like your grandmothers??
