A Recipe for Ginger Bundt Cake



I had so many Christmas recipes planned but have been so busy that I have run out of time to blog them. I am going to try and  catch up this week!

It is our third Christmas in Germany and I have tried to make a few things this year. I have made garlands for our windows and I am hoping to make a wreath tomorrow! I will blog about them (if the wreath turns out well! If it doesn’t we will just pretend it never happened! 😉 )

My first Christmas recipe is this ginger bundt cake with chocolate glaze. I love this recipe and it is a great general winter baking recipe.

Ginger Bundt Cake


180g butter

330g brown sugar

3 egg

345g plain flour

3 tsp baking powder

6 tbsp vegetable oil

3cm piece of ginger, finely grated

1.5 tbsp ground ginger

1/4 nutmeg seed, finely grated

6 tbsp golden syrup

To decorate

75g dark chocolate, finely chopped

75g double cream

candied ginger


Preheat the oven to 175c (fan assisted).

Beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy.

Add the eggs one at at time and beat until well combined.

Add all of the spices and grated ginger and mix again.

Add the oil and golden syrup and mix together.

Finally, sieve the flour and baking powder into the mixture and gently stir until everything is well combined.

Grease a bundt tin and add the cake batter to the tin, make the top as even as possible.

Bake in the preheated oven for 40 minutes. Until a knife inserted into the middle comes out clean.

Leave to cool in the tin for 5 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.

Once the cake is completely cool, put the cream into a small pan, bring to the boil and allow to simmer for 1 minute. Take off the heat and allow to cool for another minute.

Stir in the chopped chocolate until you have a smooth glossy mixture.

Pour over the top of the cake. Once the glaze has firmed up, decorate with the candied ginger.

  1. Your bundt cake looks divine! I adore ginger so I’ll have to try this. It looks delicious and spicy. Can you please tell me about how much grated nutmeg in grams or teaspoons? I’m looking forward to making your recipe. Thank you for sharing it!

    1. Thank you Julia 😊 it is a deliciously spicy cake. I am not entirely sure, but I have the other half of the nutmeg seed still so I will grate it tomorrow and let you. I hope that’s ok! Please let me know what you think of the recipe when you have tried it, I would love to see a picture! X

      1. Thank you so much for the info on quantity. I really appreciate that! I’ve never put a teaspoon of nutmeg in anything so this will be a new flavor to me. I’ll let you know how it turns out. 🙂
