  • I remember it as a favorite from my childhood and I enjoy it now as much as I did then
  • For a big slab of this ginger cake it will not set you back much and you can usually find offers going somewhere, but I bought my last ginger cake for £1.04 from Tesco and I can get about eight nice slices out of this

      The McVities Jamaica Ginger Cake is a classic as far as I am concerned. I remember it as a favorite from my childhood and I enjoy it now as much as I did then.

      As it says on the packet, the recipe has stayed the same for 50 years – why fix what ain’t broke?

      04 from Tesco and I can get about eight nice slices out of this.

      As you peel the wrapper off, you can smell the spicy ginger ...


      • aroma and it looks very tempting too.

        It looks dark brown and moist on the outside and when you cut into it the inside sponge is lighter and a lighter, ginger color.

        The whole cake is really soft and moist and sticks to your teeth, in a good way.

        It tastes of a lovely

        spicy ginger.

        My eyes are often bigger than my belly so I might cut myself a big piece but this is very rich and filling and I often end up sticking a bit back in the packet for later as I cannot finish it.

        A soft, moist, spicy ginger cake from McVities.

        What’s not to like?
