Rhubarb and ginger upside-down cake


Step 1

Heat the oven to 180C/fan 160C/gas 4. Butter and line a 23cm, deep, round springform cake tin, brush the base with 1 tbsp of the melted butter and scatter over the golden caster sugar.

Step 2

Put the cut rhubarb at the bottom of the cake tin in a geometrical pattern, so that it covers the entire base. Press down to ensure total coverage and prevent leaks.

Step 3

Mix the flour, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, ginger and soft light brown sugar in a bowl, and put to one side. Add the golden syrup, ginger chunks, ginger syrup and white chocolate into the rest of the melted butter, and mix well.

Step 4

Whisk the eggs and milk in a separate bowl with electric beaters until light and airy, then gently whisk into the butter and syrup mixture.

Step 5

Fold the flour mixture into the liquid mixture until just combined. Pour over the rhubarb and bake for 1 hour or until risen and cooked through.

Step 6

Leave to cool for 10 minutes in the tin, then turn upside down onto a wire rack and remove the tin to cool completely. Serve with a dollop of thick cream, if you like.
