Gateau de Sirop

Recipe from

Coastal Living


1 cup peanut oil
1 1/4 cups cane syrup, divided
1 cup Ginger Water
1 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon hot sauce
2 large eggs
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg


Combine peanut oil, 1 cup cane syrup, and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl, beating with a mixer on medium speed until blended. Add eggs, one at a time, beating until blended after each addition.

Combine flour and next 5 ingredients in a medium bowl; slowly add flour mixture to egg mixture, beating at low speed until blended. Pour batter into 3 greased and parchment-lined 8-inch round cake pans.

Bake at 350° for 20 to 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire racks 10 minutes, remove from pans, and cool on wire racks.

Prick cake layers with a wooden skewer; brush remaining 1/4 cup cane syrup over tops. Spread Burnt Sugar Meringue between layers and on top of cake.
