Maple Ginger Cake with Maple Glaze

Maple Ginger Cake with Maple Glaze


This recipe comes from a 1975 cookbook created at the Bradley Museum. The sweet and spicy cake has its origins in New Brunswick, where Lewis Bradley spent the middle part of his life between the ages of 12 and 30. Ginger is a spice which has been used since ancient times and was very popular in early settler recipes as you only needed to use a little to get a nice strong taste. A cake like this would have made a lovely treat to enjoy with an afternoon tea or coffee.
