Honey Ginger Bundt Cake

This weekend saw a celebration. A rather big one in fact. My big brother married the girl of his dreams in a wonderful ceremony in Surrey. I feel like we had been waiting an age for their special day to finally roll in, and all of a sudden it was over too soon. We cried, we laughed, we danced, we possibly had one too many glasses (or pints in my case) of Prosecco, and our hearts were full with happiness for this amazing couple. I had the honour of being a bridesmaid, and getting to walk down the aisle watching my brother’s face light up as he saw his bride-to-be walk in was a moment I will be sure to treasure forever.

I always feel that bundt cakes are cakes for a celebration. Something about their shape and curves is a thing of beauty. I finally got myself a bundt tin last week and knew I needed to bake something special. This honey ginger bundt cake is sweetened with natural ingredients, costcutter.co.uk‘s Independent Honey. The soft flavours of the spelt match the honey and ginger so beautifully, I knew I was onto a winner. I was all out of any sort of natural icing ingredients, so dusted it with some coconut flour, but I bet a cashew icing would set a slice of this cake of beautifully. Happy celebrating friends.

  1. Hope you had an amazing time being bridesmaid at your brothers wedding. What a special family occasion, especially that you made a lovely cake! I have a bundt tin, I’ve rarely used it – need to rectify that. The cake sounds amazing and I love gingerbread flavours as well as honey!

  2. Where are the wedding pictures? Bundts are brilliant for making cake’s look fantastic with very little effort. Love the flavours you’ve used and spelt makes such splendid bakes.

  3. Congratulations to your brother and new sister – how wonderful! I love the fuchsias and autumnal leaves you’ve used, they’re so pretty!

    The cake itself looks and sounds gorgeous, so warming and comforting!

Thank You! I love hearing from you all.
