Just now out of the oven: Guiness Stout ginger cake from _The Last Course_ by Claudia Fleming. It smells insanely good.

Pulled up this recipe and will be making it for NYE. My question: Do you need to use your mixer to combine the eggs, sugar and oil? Or, just a whisk in a bowl? What I mean is, there is no mention of a "ribbon stage" for the eggs and sugar.

I used my standing mixer, but I have also made it with just a bowl and whisk. An exceptionally moist cake--I just had a piece a few minutes ago, and it is still really good, five days after I made it. It's been sitting out at room temp under a cake dome all that time.
