Gingerbread Bundt Cake

Printable Recipe

Mix together:
3 1/3 cups flour
2 ½ t. baking powder
1 ½ t. salt
1 T. ginger
1 ½ t. cinnamon
1 cup sugar

2 eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup molasses

Slowly add:
¾ cup plus 2 T canola oil
1 cup boiling water

Mix thoroughly. You'll need to scrape the sides and bottom of bowl.

Pour batter into a greased and floured 12-cup bundt pan and bake at 350 for about 50-60 minutes.

This is a dark cake. Let cool in the pan for about 10 minutes, then invert onto a serving plate. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.

Holly's Note:
I wanted to do a gingerbread bundt cake for a bridal shower (we were serving different bundt cakes). I found the original recipe at
Pinch. I think this would be really good with vanilla ice cream or just real whipped cream. I served it sprinkled with powdered sugar.

We Go Together...

Do you have certain recipes that must go together? Meaning you cannot make one without the other?

For example: we cannot have Baked Beans without cornbread. Granted, I use a Jiffy cornbread mix, but we must have cornbread with beans.

Last night it was about 10 degrees outside and definitely a soup night. So, I made Chicken with Wild Rice Soup, and you can't serve that soup without Honey Oat Rolls (or some kind of wheat roll). It's sacrilege. It doesn't work.

Teriyaki Chicken must be served with Sauteed Pepper and Mushrooms.

Beef Enchiladas must be served with Spanish Rice. Must, I tell you.

What about you? What are the recipes at your house that must go together?
