How to Bake a Melon-Ginger Sponge Cake

by Karen Larard

I don't know how this is going to turn out, never tried it before, so if you see this guide it turned out ok.


  • 1 Pounds A honeydew melon
  • Fresh ginger
  • 1 Cup Sugar
  • 3 Eggs
  • 1 Pounds Flour
  • 2 Grams Baking powder
  • Instructions

    Step 1

    I just love baking. I had this melon and it was getting a bit melancholy so I decided to do some thing with it. I often bake sponge cake with apples so why not try melancholy melon?

    Step 2

    Whip your eggs with sugar. Blitz melon and a piece of ginger. Mix into the eggs, add flour and baking powder. Stir together.

    Step 3

    You might need a bit more or less flour, depending on the size of your melon. You want a consistency like dough for brownies. Bake at 375f for 45 minutes. Test to see if it needs more time in the oven

    Step 4

    The melon taste is very subtle, and it can't really be boosted, but the ginger/melon combo is really good.Next time maybe some lemon zest ? The texture is fine, moist and lovely.
