Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Generously butter bundt pan and dust with flour, knocking out excess.
  • Bring stout and molasses to a boil in a large saucepan and remove from heat. Whisk in baking soda, then cool to room temperature.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, and spices in a large bowl.
  • Whisk together eggs and sugars.
  • Whisk in oil, then molasses mixture. Add to flour mixture and whisk until just combined.
  • Pour batter into bundt pan and rap pan sharply on counter to eliminate air bubbles.
  • Bake in middle of oven until a tester comes out with just a few moist crumbs adhering, about 50 minutes.
  • Cool cake in pan on a rack 5 minutes. Turn out onto rack and cool completely.
  • Serve cake, dusted with confectioners sugar, with whipped cream.
  • **NOTE: This gingerbread cake is better if made a day ahead. It will keep 3 days, covered, at room temperature.

    Love this recipe. If you're on the fence, go for it. Totally worth it, even just for the smell that fills your kitchen. Originally found this on Smitten Kitchen, but it's taken from Claudia Fleming, formerly of Gramercy Tavern, and it's not worth sifting through the whole story for the recipe.

    I made this divine cake earlier today and it is super. Obviously I was fascinated by the use of beer in a cake. I've used beer to cook with and as hair styler for body but never in baking before. The house smelled so good and the cake came out wonderfully. What a unique and terrific recipe!

    Vickie, terrific post! I can almost smell this baking now. But then I have a vivid imagination. Two tablespoons of ground ginger? This must be fabulous. I'm surprised Ahmed hasn't smelled this one! Thanks for the post,I have it saved. A flavorful 5!

    Luney - thank you. This cake sounds incredible. I just printed the recipe and will make it by the end of the week for us to inhale next weekend. I am excited about the idea of essentially a spice cake with beer activating the leavening. Since a visit to Dublin and pub dinners I love a good, well-pulled Guinness stout!
