Most ginger cake recipes contain too much sugar, molasses and butter for my taste. I found this one online. It is mainly sweetened by dates and I replaced the molasses with malt extract (no molasses on hand at the time). It is not a very sweet cake at all, somewhere between a loaf and a cake. Made with spelt flour and was left to rise for about 8 hours. Great with butter and it even makes good toast.
