To the butter and egg mixture, add in Quark and grated carrots and any liquid sweeteners, the ground ginger and nutmeg, the grated ginger, the ginger syrup and the cane molasses . Beat well.

Mix flours and salt and xantham gum together and either sift or beat out lumps before adding to the mixture. Beat well and taste for sweetness. Add in chopped stem ginger and beat. Add in baking powder and beat lightly. Last, gently fold in the whisked egg whites with a metal spoon to keep in the air .

This cake keeps well and stays moist the flavour improves over several days if it lasts that long!
