OMG! You have to try this one! It's juicy, it's christmassy, it's soft, it's just lovely! I got this recipe from my boyfriend's mom, who in return got it from her husband's grandmother....so you could say the recipe is well tried in other words. And still does the trick! :-)
Soft Gingerbread Cake
3 1/2 dl sugar
2 tsp cinnamon powder
1 1/2 tsp clove powder
1 tbsp baking powder
4 1/2 dl wheat flour
2 tbsp lingonberry jam
3 1/2 dl butter-milk ( I think you can use unsweetened natural yogurt too)
75 grams melted butter
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C.
Mix all the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Add melted butter, butter-milk (or natural yogurt), lingonberry jam and blend to a smooth mixture.
Pour the mixture into a baking tin and bake in the middle of the oven for about 30-40 minutes. Use a toothpick to see if the cake is ready. The toothpick should be dry after putting it into the cake.
Let the cake cool down and then indulge in this absolutely wonderful Christmas cake!
