Rhubarb and ginger streusel cake
A delicious cake to spice up your tea time

For the cake

100g butter

150g caster sugar

2 free-range eggs, beaten

100ml fresh milk

225g self-raising flour

1/2 jar Kerry Green Homemade Rhubarb and Ginger Jam

For the streusel

25g butter

25g flour

75g soft brown sugar

1/2 tsp ground ginger

6 small crystallised ginger balls, cut into small pieces

50g chopped pecans

Custard or cream, to serve

Heat the oven to 170°C and grease and line a 28x18cm cake tin.

Make the streusel mixture by rubbing the butter into the flour and then adding the sugar, ground ginger, crystallised ginger pieces and the chopped nuts. Set aside.

Cream the butter with the sugar until light and fluffy, and then add the beaten eggs with the milk. Fold in the flour and mix well.

Spoon half of the cake mixture into the prepared cake tin. Drop spoons of the rhubarb and ginger jam over the cake mixture and then scatter half of the streusel over the top of the jam. 

Cover with the remaining cake mixture and then the rest of the streusel and bake for 40 minutes, or until the cake is well risen and golden brown.

Allow the cake to cool in the tin before cutting into squares and serving with custard or cream.
