Having a catch up over Monica's family Ginger Cake


Our Monday Market is not just about people coming into to do a shop, it’s also about taking time to  sit, have a cuppa, some breakfast, and a natter with friends old and new.  There’s always a lot of smiles and laughter!

It was cake all round at the Market yesterday as Monica has been back in her kitchen baking her much loved ginger cake.    Monica has kindly shared her recipe with us which has been passed down through the  family.  Monica told us we could share the recipe with you.  Why not have a go and let us know how you get on.

Thanks Monica for sharing your cake and recipe.
