Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 13-by-9-inch cake pan; line with parchment paper. Whisk flour, ginger, baking soda and salt in a bowl; set aside.

  • Using an electric mixer, beat eggs and sugar at medium speed until pale and thick, about 5 minutes.

  • Heat milk in microwave until hot. Stir in butter. While mixing at low speed, drizzle hot milk into egg mixture; mix until smooth. Stir in vanilla. Sift a third of flour mixture into egg mixture; stir to blend. Repeat twice with remaining flour.

  • Scrape batter into pan; bake until a cake tester comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out onto a rack; let cool completely. Remove parchment paper.

  • Whip heavy cream and confectioners' sugar. Cut cake into 12 portions. Spread jam and then whipped cream on each piece. Sprinkle with candied ginger, if desired
