Glazed Gingerbread Bundt Cake
Glazed Gingerbread Bundt Cake is a spectacular gingerbread cake iced with a thin sugar glaze ~ this delicious coffeecake is guaranteed to get you into the holiday spirit.
Not being into elaborate desserts has its perks…like bundt cake, for instance. Since I don’t indulge in rich layer cakes or over-the-top treats very often, I feel more than entitled to enjoy the occasional bundt cake. If it’s breakfast worthy, all the better.
There’s nothing more luxurious, if you ask me, than waking up to a seriously hot cup of strong coffee and a little slice of something like this glazed gingerbread bundt cake.
The cake itself has a fine crumb, and is a little more lightly spiced than some gingerbread, making it a good choice if you like your winter spices on the mild side. The glaze forms a sweet, crackly crust, much like on a glazed doughnut. It’s all very very good.
