Aurelius’ Ginger Cake Recipe

This ginger cake is the perfect blend of sweet and spicy. I made small cakes using a square muffin pan. In The Thirteenth Tale, Aurelius is a baker and caterer and this is one of his specialties.

Prep:  15 minutes | Cook Time:  45 minutes | Makes:  12 mini cakes

Ginger Cake Recipe


  • 2 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup unsalted butter
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 tablespoons fresh grated ginger root
  • Powdered sugar as garnish


  1. Preheat oven to 350 °F.
  2. Grease and flour a square muffin pan or use a cooking spray for baking.
  3. In a medium bowl, sift the flour and ground spices together.
  4. In a large bowl, cream the butter and brown sugar.  Beat in the eggs one at a time, beating well between each addition.  Stir in the vanilla and grated ginger root.
  5. Alternately add the milk and flour, stirring until just combined after each addition.
  6. Pour into the prepared muffin pan and bake at 350 °F for about 45 minutes until toothpick comes out clean.   Lightly sprinkle with powdered sugar.
