A bit of a fruit cake

Ginger has been recommended as an anti nausea aid during my chemo so I've been adding it to practically everything and it seems to be working.

My latest "ginger creation" was these little ginger & sultana cakes that I rustled up this morning. They must be good as there are hardly any left!

Little Ginger & Sultana cakes - makes 12

4oz soft butter
4oz brown sugar
5oz SR flour
2 eggs
1 heaped teaspoon ginger powder
2 tablespoons milk
8 oz sultanas

Whisk everything except the sultanas together in a large bowl.
Stir in the sultanas.
Drop mixture into 12 paper cases in a muffin tin & bake at Gas 4 for approx 25-30 mins.

Simple & delicious.

Have you tried the sea bands, made as a preventative to motion sickness? I found them helpful when I was in your position. All the very best and stay strong, it's a long haul but you will get through.
