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!

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 yoghurt to add incredible moisture.

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 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!

    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 🙂
