“This may look like a classic chocolate Bundt cake, but one bite tells you it's something more. Generous amounts of ground and freshly grated ginger give it a spice that's just right for the season. A bourbon-spiked sauce adds another layer of richness and flavor.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Butter a 9 inch Bundt pan. Dust with cocoa powder and tap out excess; set aside. Put butter molasses, brown sugar and ½ cup water in a medium saucepan over medium low heat. Cook, stirring constantly, until butter has melted. Transfer to a large bowl. Let cool 5 minutes.
  2. Add eggs, milk, and grated ginger to the molasses mixture; whisk to combine. Sift together flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, ground ginger, and cinnamon into a medium bowl.
  3. Gently fold the flour mixture into the molasses mixture until just combined. There should be lumps remaining. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake cake until a cake tester inserted into center comes out clean, about 30 minutes. Let cake cool completely in pan on a wire rack.
  4. Invert cake, and unmold into a cake stand or a large serving platter. Using a spoon, drizzle the warm bourbon sauce over the cake in a back and forth motion. Serve immediately.
