Ginger Bundt Cake

This one is Spouse’s recipe to which she added a very delicious chocolate glaze. She is very fond of any ginger cake and this one is a particular favorite.

Candied ginger slices. 

What we both really love about this recipe is the candied ginger added to the batter. It really is delicious to bite into one of these sweet little pieces of ginger inside the cake. I generally use the one in syrup but the one pictured above is fine too.

You can of course make this without the Chocolate Nutmeg Glaze. It’s a great cake any way you slice it and without the glaze it makes for a less fussy cake for packed lunches.
