"How language changes. A gobbet is an eighteenth-century word for a mouthful, a polite and dainty word, perfect to describe these little cakes."
We have come up with the following adaption:
Makes about 18 mini-muffin cakes.
What you will need:
1/2 cup of unsalted butter (1 stick), at room temperature
1/4 cup sugar
grated zest and juice of 1 orange
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
2 extra large eggs, beaten
This is what you do:
Cream the butter with the sugar and orange zest.
In a separate bowl, sift the flour, baking soda, and ground ginger together.
In an additional bowl, beat your eggs.
Mix the flour and beaten eggs alternately into the creamed mixture.
When fully mixed, add the orange juice.
Butter the smallest tartlet (we used mini-muffin) tins/pans and spoon in the mixture.
Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 15 minutes or until done.
These cakes would be well suited with vanilla ice cream piped into the middle served with a sprig of mint.
