      This make a large batch so I got 2 small loaves & 6 muffins, I made as directed but cut the ginger powder back to 1 tsp & added 1 tsp cinnamon as I'm not a huge ginger lover and with the crystallized ginger I thought it may be too overpowering for my tastes. The end result was a lovely tasty, moist cake that the family enjoyed. Best eaten on the day of making or frozen.

      As my loaf tin was a bit small, I used a couple of muffin cases for the mixture that wouldn't fit in the tin. I preferred the muffin version because they didn't take so long to cook (instant gratification girl that I am) and I thought that the moist, loose crumb of the cake was really well suited to the small, individual portions. I used 3 fresh eating apples, was very liberal with the gingers and added a little cinnamon too. Very, very tasty!

      Delicious, moist loaf. I just wish I'd added more spices (I think I trebled the crystalised ginger). This is more of a tea cake than a loaf, it's so light and moist it makes an awesome dessert, especially with the fresh apple taste.
