Julia’s great grandmother, affectionately called “Nana” by the Usher kids, served this ginger-coriander cake all by itself at Christmastime. (It is steamed, and has a high water content, so it is incredibly moist.) But, being the more-is-more person that Julia is, she couldn’t leave well enough alone – she had to make it even more decadent! One Christmas not too long ago, she layered it with eggnog buttercream and candied citrus, and the combination met with rave reviews. Julia fully expects to have plenty of requests for this cake from future Usher generations! Check out Julia’s blog for the recipe.
