Golden Syrup Cake with No-churn Ripple Ice Cream

Golden Syrup Cake B

Despite the ingredients, this cake isn’t ridiculously sweet. Instead it is moist and definitely something I can find solace in. The golden syrup lends its golden hue to the sponge, and the raspberry jam gives a strike of vibrance to the super easy ice cream. Enjoy!
