For the Pound Cake

For the Glaze

  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/2 tbsp milk
  • Edible white chocolate snowflakes for garnish


For the Cake

  • Preheat your oven to 350 degrees and spray a 12-cup Bundt pan with non-stick baking spray or grease with shortening/butter and flour and set aside.
  • In the bowl of your stand mixer, add together butter, both sugars and molasses and beat on high speed until light and fluffy for about 5 minutes.
  • Next, add in eggs one at a time and mix until well incorporated.
  • Slow mixer to lowest speed and carefully add flour, ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, allspice, and cloves in increments and mix until well combined.  
  • Lastly mix in buttermilk and vanilla until smooth.
  • Pour cake batter into prepared pan and bake for 50-60 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out mostly clean.  
  • Remove cake from oven and allow to cool for 10 minutes, then invert cake into cooling rack or serving plate, cool until room temperature, then prepare glaze.

For the Glaze

  • Once cake is completely cooled, whisk together confectioner's sugar, maple syrup and milk. Add more milk or syrup if needed. Glaze should be pourable but not too thin.
  • Drizzle glaze over cooled cake. Garnish with snowflakes and serve.



Make sure you begin with room temperature ingredients to create a very smooth textured batter before baking.
