Elli's Grandma's Sticky Ginger Cake Recipe from The Ginger Baker

Firstly I have to thank Sharon from "The Ginger Baker" for allowing me to publish this lovely delicious GLUTEN FREE recipe on my blog. The Ginger Baker is a great Gluten Free bakery based in the beautiful Ribble Valley area of Lancashire, who is passionate about her product and she loves using Lancashire's finest produce in her delicious sweety delights. She supplies cafes and outlets across the county and also attends various food and vintage fairs as well. 


I wanted to feature this recipe as an honest to goodness easy family recipe but is especially fab as its Gluten free, I have a couple of coeliac mates and they would love this. Its really easy and is delicious and sticky if left for a couple of days to mature. I am fascinated to know why its Elli's Grandma's recipe and who is Elli, may be Sharon can let me know.
