This Fresh Ginger Cake is great all by itself, but add in a succulent caramelised pear topping and you have a very special cake indeed. If you’re a ginger cake or gingerbread fan like I am, give this a try.

Reminiscent of a sticky pudding, this cake is easy to make. Generous quantities of sour cream and butter ensure that this is a lovely moist ginger cake.  Its sweetness comes from a combination of honey and sugar in the cake and the topping of juicy pears. A winning combination for sure.

The inventive Share My Kitchen brings you this delicious Fresh Ginger Cake recipe.
