Skipton beckoned last week and it was an interesting experience!!!
The Mart Theatre is in the Cattle auction mart. Cows were still being sold on the Thursday afternoon as we were due to open in the evening.The space was warm but a little smelly!!!
I made a Ginger and Honey sponge to cheer us all up.
250 g butter
250g caster sugar
1/2 tsp baking powder
250g self raising flour
2 tsps ground ginger
1 tblsp runny honey
3 balls crystallised stem ginger in syrup (chopped very small)
Cream butter and sugar
add eggs,honey,ground ginger.
Sieve in flour and baking powder
Add chopped ginger
Split and place in 2 bottom lined sponge tins
Into 190oc oven for 20 mins
150g icing sugar
2tsps runny honey
Mix together and layer sponges with buttercream and ginger preserve (if possible)
Really gingery and gooey - didn't mind the smell after a big slice.
