Ginger Slice Traybake

Ginger has been a popular flavor running through my bakes since I started the blog. And as it’s always proved a winner with Little Miss Traybakes, when I saw this Ginger Slice Traybake recipe, I had to give it a go. For other gingery bakes try Date and Ginger CrunchiesGinger Shortcake or even Ginger Cake. See, I told you ginger is popular in traybakes (and cake, and cookies…!)

Ginger Cake

The festive season is well and truly upon us here at Traybakes HQ.
