Ginger Ale Bundt Cake

ginger ale bundt cake
Ginger ale always reminds me of my mom. I don't remember ever having ginger ale in the house, but if we were on an airplane, Mom was ordering a ginger ale.

I know she would have liked this cake, too. The cake has a subtle ginger flavor and the texture is perfection...moist and light with a crispy exterior. I mean, is there anything worse than a heavy and dense Bundt cake? Ok...there are a lot of things worse than that, but Bundt cake-wise, heavy and dense is not my favorite.

The ginger flavor is punched up just a bit with the addition of crystallized ginger....I LOVE this stuff! So good! Trader Joe's carries it pre-packaged and my regular grocery store has it in the bulk section.

Oh! And there's a glaze! A vanilla-ginger ale glaze. So sweet, so shiny, so glaze-y.

I'm sharing the recipe over on Imperial Sugar's site today. 
I'm also trying to refrain from eating the rest of what is sitting in my kitchen right now. Family of 3, 1 Bundt cake, me left alone in the house all day...my poor waistline.

  3. Bridget,
    I'm finally getting automatic e-mails when you post again (they had stopped for some unknown reason). I love bundt cakes and this one will be added to my list of best bundt cakes.
