Spiced Ginger cake from Grandaisy Bakery

Posted by Niko on January 10th, 2011

Ginger cake aka Tortino Di Zenzero

Don’t mistake this nice looking, sugar-dusted cylinder for some kind of chocolate creation–it’s not.  It’s a spiced ginger cake and if you like ginger, real ginger that is, you will love this cake.  Even at $4.00 it’s worth it because 1) it’s a big piece of cake and 2) there’s shredded ginger inside!  According to Kathy at SE NY, they used whole grain rye which explains why it has a slightly grainy texture (the opposite texture of a brioche).
