Ingredients

  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 3/4 cups sifted cake-and-pastry flour
  • 1 2/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter softened
  • 1/2 cup finely diced crystallized ginger
Brown Sugar Sauce:
  • 2/3 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream
  • 1 tablespoon brandy (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon rum (optional)
  • 1 pinch salt

Method

In small bowl, whisk together 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the buttermilk, eggs, egg white and vanilla.

In large bowl and using hand mixer on low speed, mix together flour, sugar, baking powder, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, nutmeg and salt. Mix in butter and remaining buttermilk; beat at medium-high speed for 2 minutes. Beat in egg mixture, in thirds, beating for 30 seconds after each addition. Fold in crystallized ginger.

Spread in greased and floured 10-inch (3 L) Bundt pan; swirl with knife to remove air bubbles. Smooth top. Bake in 350°F (180°C) oven until cake tester inserted in centre comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Let cool in pan on rack for 10 minutes. Loosen cake from edges of pan; invert onto rack and let cool completely. (Make-ahead: Cover and let stand for up to 24 hours.)

Brown Sugar Sauce: In small saucepan, bring sugar, butter and cream to boil, stirring; boil until sugar is dissolved, about 2 minutes. Stir in brandy (if using) and salt. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate in airtight container for up to 24 hours; rewarm.) Serve with cake.
