I made this today to use up some pumpkin from the fridge. Mum and SD aren't huge fans of ginger so I used some mixed spice and only a little of the ground ginger. I also reduced the amount of glace ginger and added some raisins.
The first thing I noticed while reading the recipe was that the first step says to grind the sugar and doesn't say to remove it, but then the second step says to add the sugar. So I don't know if I was supposed to remove the sugar after grinding, but I didn't and it turned out fine ;)
I sprinkled some flaked almonds as well as the pumkin seeds on top of my loaves :) They look and smell great so I can't wait until they cool down so we can taste them :D

This cake is delicious ;D It is moist and flavoursome and the seeds on top give a nice bit of crunch ;)

I have frozen one loaf, I'm sure it will defrost fine :)

I made it two days ago and it hasn't dried out at all :D

Mum has asked me to make it again soon!

Kim - I think I had to wait a little.  You should receive an email from Sarah Wong and it has an attachment - pdf that you download from there . .Do you have Sarah's email address so you can enquire?
