Gingerbread Bundt Cake

Gingerbread Bundt Cake – A deliciously moist and fluffy ginger-spiced molasses cake drizzled with a sweet maple glaze!

Nothing beats the warm, comforting flavours of ginger and molasses during the holidays, so today I bring you my deliciously moist and fluffy Gingerbread Bundt Cake!

This is a quick and easy cake recipe that requires no mixer, because you’ll be using melted butter instead of creaming the butter and sugar together.

This recipe calls for cake flour to create a beautifully light and fluffy cake, and Greek-style yogurt to add incredible moisture.

Ingredients for Gingerbread Bundt Cake:

  • cake flour
  • baking powder
  • baking soda
  • salt
  • ground ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg
  • large eggs
  • brown sugar
  • unsalted butter
  • Greek-style yogurt
  • molasses or black treacle

For the maple glaze:

  • icing/powdered sugar
  • maple syrup
  • water

The delicious spices used in this cake are ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. All my favourite autumn flavours together in one cake. A nice, big slice would go perfectly with a hot cup of tea or coffee on a cold winter’s day!

This looks like the perfect cake for Christmas, but the last time I made a gingerbread cake, it was so dense, and it "shrunk" in my bunt pan. I might have used plain flour, since I am lazy/broke like that. Would cake flour make the cake"fluffy" and spongy?

Thank you! Yes, cake flour makes this cake fluffy and spongy :) In my recipe notes, I also note how you can make your own cake flour using plain flour and cornflour :)

This looks delicious!! One question though, family is not a huge fan of maple syrup. Could I just omit that from the glaze?

Hi Karen, you could use golden syrup, or even corn syrup in the glaze instead!
