Gorgeous Bake Club and the most delicious cake ever!

My friends and colleagues at Baked & Delicious have recently launched the most fabulous online community called Bake Club.

This stunning site is packed full of the most beautiful recipes and fascinating foodie blogs and vlogs.

While I was having a nose the other day I got very excited about this recipe I stumbled across.

I LOVE tea bread and chocolate,
and ginger – in fact this must be
my perfect cake, so I had to give it a try.

The original recipe actually used ground cardamom but I couldn’t find it so I replaced it with allspice and it was still delicious. Every single member of the family loved it.


Chocolate, Ginger and Cardamom Tea Bread


  • Chocolate-&-Ginger-Tea-Bread-AGround cardamom 2 tsp
  • Crystallised stem ginger 250g (9oz)
  • Raisins 110g (4oz)
  • Light muscovado sugar 75g (3oz)
  • Orange 1, zest only
  • Strong Assam tea 200ml (7fl oz)
  • Egg 1, beaten
  • Self-raising flour 200g (7oz)
  • 70% dark chocolate 110g (4oz), chopped into generous chunks


  1. Chocolate-&-Ginger-Tea-Bread-BAdd the cardamom, ginger, raisins, sugar and zest to a large bowl and pour in the hot Assam tea. Cover the bowl with a cloth and leave overnight to soak
  2. When ready to start baking, preheat the oven to 160°C/gas mark 3. Line a loaf tin with baking parchment and set aside
  3. Add the egg to the mix, stir to combine then gradually mix in the flour until smooth and incorporated. Stir in the chocolate chunks then pour the mixture into the lined loaf tin. Bake in the oven for an hour and a half, until a metal skewer inserted into the cake comes out clean
  4. Remove from the oven and leave the cake to cool in the tin. When cool, carefully remove from the tin and wrap in parchment paper, followed by a clean tea towel. Leave the bundle for 24 hours before unwrapping and eating – this will allow the cake to develop a deeper, more rounded flavour.
