Walton Hall Ginger Cake

A recent revival of ours is the Walton Hall Ginger Cake.


This recipe was originally created by the daughter to the gamekeeper, Susan Butler at Walton Hall, Warwickshire and was a favourite of the late Sir Richard Hamilton, 9th Baronet and owner.

It seems Sir Richard was nursed post WWII by Ms Butler and amongst the recuperative’s was this delicious cake.

A dark, smooth rich, light and moist molasses cake, studded with chopped stem ginger and a special sticky glaze, or version of this cake has been described as ‘the ultimate ginger cake’ and with various audible expressions of satisfaction, it is a new signature in our baking repertoire.
