Baking With Dorot Crushed Ginger Cubes

We’ve already spoken in a previous blog about how ginger can be called for in the recipes for a number of hot and cold drinks – but that’s not the only place you’ll find this highly versatile ingredient. The delightful warmth and lightly-spiced flavor of ginger can be used in savory recipes too, but today we’ll explore how that flavor – as provided by Dorot crushed ginger cubes – can be brought to an array of sweet baked treats.

Why use Dorot crushed ginger cubes in baking?

Well, for many home baking or cooking enthusiasts, the laborious task of preparing fresh ginger can deter them from exploring recipes including this amazing ingredient.However, Dorot crushed ginger cubes are a convenient solution that eliminates the hassle of ginger preparation while preserving its unparalleled flavor and freshness.

Try using Dorot crushed gigner cubes to make these great recipes!

Ginger Cake
Let’s kick off our exploration with a timeless classic: ginger cake. A harmonious blend of indulgence and spice, ginger cake tantalizes the taste buds with its rich and deep flavor profile. Traditionally, ginger cake recipes will call for finely grated fresh ginger, and that can involve a laborious and time-consuming prep process. Fear not though – Dorot crushed ginger cubes can easily stand in for this ingredient – giving you all of the flavor with none of the hassle. As a jumping-off point, we recommend this simple recipe by David Lebovitz. For those of you out there that like to tweak recipes and put your own spin on things, why not consider elevating the experience with a splash of rum, infusing the cake with an extra hint of sophistication? Whether served hot or cold, accompanied by a dollop of cream or a scoop of ice cream, this ginger-infused delight promises to enchant palates with every bite.

Ginger-Lemon Pound Cake
Next on our list is this delightful ginger-lemon pound cake we found by Karen Tedesco on, which marries the zesty freshness of lemon with the warmth of ginger really well. The recipe calls for grated fresh ginger, but once again Dorot crushed ginger cubes can serve as an equally viable alternative.You have plenty of options when it comes to serving this one too – when cold you might choose to enhance the lemon flavor with a layer of lemon curd, or even introduce new notes by spreading something like PB&J, or perhaps a decadent layer of chocolate hazelnut spread. We’d serve it cold if you’re going to do this of course, but with that said – there’s nothing stopping you enjoying it warm with cream or ice cream too!

No exploration of ginger-infused baking would be complete without paying homage to the beloved gingerbread – and a great way to do that is by making BBC Good Food’s ultimate easy gingerbread recipe. A timeless classic, gingerbread has delighted children and adults alike for generations, with its irresistible aroma, unique texture and charmingly rustic appeal. Ginger is of course the cornerstone of this recipe, and the convenience of Dorot crushed ginger cubes means that you can focus on creating a great end product rather than using up your time to prepare the ingredients that go into that end product – and do it all without compromising on flavor.

Gingerbread can be a really versatile bake since it can be cut into all sorts of shapes for all sorts of occasions, and there are lots of different cutters out there to help you shape your gingerbread how you want. Likewise, gingerbread is also easy to decorate with any number of different things – frosting / icing, small candies, chocolate chips – things like that. It’s a great blank canvas on which you can let your creativity shine, not to mention a great fun activity for the kids on the weekend or during the school holidays!

Ginger Snaps
While reminiscent of gingerbread in taste, these ginger snaps (recipe by Stephanie Loo) offer a distinctively different sensory experience. The texture is markedly different, and they definitely are more of a ‘cookie’ than a ‘bread’ or a ‘cake’. Once again, Dorot crushed ginger cubes can be used to provide that essential ingredient of ginger without the need for time consuming prep, and once again ginger snaps present a myriad of culinary possibilities once they’ve been baked. You can enjoy them on their own of course, or used in pairs with a filling to create sandwich-style biscuits – you can even put them in the food processor or blender with some melted butter to add a little something extra to the base of your next home-made cheesecake!
