--
THIS GINGERBREAD BUNDT CAKE IS NOT ONLY FLAVORFUL AND DELICIOUS, IT IS REALLY EASY TO MAKE AND PRACTICALLY DECORATES ITSELF!!
With the holidays rapidly approaching, the delightful smell of gingerbread is something that the holiday
season cannot do without! As a baker this is my happy holiday smell that fills my kitchen leading up to
this busy baking season. I love how the smells of ginger, nutmeg, allspice, cloves, and cinnamon merry
together and fill my home with yummy aromas.
This moist gingerbread bundt cake, has a soft crumb and is exploding with lots of gingerbread flavor.
You can taste the molasses and brown sugar, while getting a nice burst of spice, making it all blend
together seamlessly. What makes this gingerbread cake recipe even better is the sugar cranberries on
top. This provides a bright sugared tart burst of flavor that cuts through the spices and cleanses the
palate as it prepares for its next bite.
