Ginger Cake

Ginger……. Aside from this is the name of my daughter, It is one of my favourite ingredients too. That is why I named my daughter “ginger”.  Back to the recipe, It is a recipe inspired from a ginger bread. The base is healthy made with oats and the topping is a creamy butter icing. Over all it is simply irresistible, love it!…………..Did you know that ginger  can also be used for reducing toothache and the discomfort which arises due to the infection in the upper respiratory tract due to its antibacterial and antifungal nature. Also used by pregnant women to ward off the morning sickness……
