I know the holiday season is over, but this is a great cake if you’re looking for something new. It has tons of spices in it that give it a little kick, and the icing is absolutely gorgeous. It’s moist, rich, and oh so decadent.

The sweet and tangy cream cheese icing is a great to counteract some of that pungent molasses smell (and taste) and really ties everything together nicely.

Store it in your recipe book for next Christmas!

Big shout out to Sally’s Baking Addiction for the incredible icing and Brown Eyed Baker for the cake recipe.

 

Ingredients:

Cake

– 2 ½ cups flour

– 2 teaspoons baking powder

– ½ teaspoon salt

– ¼ teaspoon baking soda

– ½ cup molasses

– ½ cup brewed coffee

– 1 ¼ cups unsalted butter (room temp)

– 1 ¼ cups brown sugar

– 3 eggs + 2 egg yolks

– 2 teaspoons ginger

– 2 teaspoons English pudding spice (If you don’t have it, you can use a combination of allspice, cinnamon, ground cloves, and nutmeg)

 

Step One: Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, ginger, and spices.

Step Two: In another bowl, whisk together molasses and coffee.

Step Three: Cream butter, then add brown sugar and beat for 3 minutes.

Step Four: Add eggs and yolks one by one into the butter. Reduce to low speed.

Step Five: Add flour mixture and coffee mixture into the butter mixture. Stir a few times with a spatula to make sure everything is mixed together.

Step Six: Pour batter into bundt pan and bake for 40 minutes at 350F.

NOTE: BEFORE POURING BATTER INTO PAN: Grease the pan well with shortening or margarine, then coat it in a light layer of flour. This will make sure your cake doesn’t get stuck.

Step Seven: Remove and let your cake cool. Once it has cooled, turn the pan upside down and gently remove.

 

Icing

– ¼ cup unsalted butter (softened)

– 4 oz cream cheese (softened)

– 2 cups icing sugar

– 2 Tablespoons milk

– 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

– melted chocolate

 

Step One: Beat butter and cream cheese.

Step Two: Slowly add icing sugar, vanilla, and milk.

Step Three: Melt chocolate.

Step Four: Slather your cake in a thick layer of icing and then drizzle chocolate overtop.
