Gingerbread Spice Bundt Cake with Carmel Sauce #BundtaMonth

This month we were cooking to a "Holiday theme" for the Bundt a Month cake challenge. So I came up with the idea of a Gingerbread cake. I served it with a Caramel Sauce and Salted Caramel Ice-cream. Yum was the veridic all-round.

Gingerbread Spice Bundt Cake with Caramel Sauce

  • 1 cup (250 mL) buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg white
  • 1½ tsp (7 mL) vanilla
  • 2¾ cups (675 mL / 340g) sifted cake-and-pastry flour
  • 1⅔ cups (400 mL / 365g) granulated sugar
  • 2½ tsp (10 mL) baking powder
  • 2½ tsp (10 mL) ground ginger
  • 1¼ tsp (6 mL) cinnamon
  • ½ tsp (2 mL) baking soda
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) ground cloves
  • ¼ tsp (1 mL) ground nutmeg
  • 1 pinch salt
  • ¾ cup (175 mL / 180g) softened butter

​Caramel Sauce:
  • ⅔ cup (150 mL / 150g) packed brown sugar
  • ¼ cup (60 mL / 60g) butter
  • ¼ cup (60 mL) 35% cream

Cooking Directions
  • Pre-heat oven to (180°C) 350°F
  • In a bowl, whisk together 3/4 of the buttermilk, eggs, egg white and vanilla. In another bowl mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg and salt.
  • Place into a mixer and beat in butter and remaining buttermilk; then beat at medium-high speed for 2 minutes. Slowly beat in egg mixture, a little at a time, beating between each addition.

  • Pour into a greased 10 (3 L) Bundt pan; run a knife through the batter to remove any air bubbles. Bake about 40 minutes or until cake tester comes out clean. Let cool in pan on a rack for 10 minutes. Invert onto rack and let cool completely.
  • Caramel Sauce: In a saucepan, bring sugar, butter and cream to boil stirring constantly. Boil until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes.
  • Pour over cake just before you serve.
