Dear SOS: Whenever my family is in Berkeley, we try to stop by Ginger Island Restaurant for dinner. No matter how much we savor the appetizers and entrees, we always save room for the scrumptious ginger cake. Do you think they’d be willing to share the recipe?
Dear Lillian: This simple cake makes a great holiday dessert. At the restaurant, chef Larry Lefebvre serves it with whipped cream flavored with a dash of orange juice, orange zest and sugar. And a little candied ginger on the side.
