Ginger Bundt Cake with Chocolate Nutmeg Ganache Glaze

This one is Spouse's recipe to which she added a very delicious chocolate glaze. She is very fond of any ginger cake and this one is a particular favorite. It's a great pot-luck recipe too for those like us who always bring dessert to such events as it is not fussy and travels quite well.

3 ¼ cups of flour
4 tsp ground ginger
4 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp baking soda
½ tsp ground cloves
½ tsp ground black pepper
½ tsp salt
1 cup butter
2 cups molasses
2 eggs
1 cup boiling water
1/3 cup finely chopped candied ginger
3 tbsp grated fresh ginger

Sift together flour, ground ginger, cinnamon, baking soda, cloves, pepper and salt.

Cream together butter and molasses. Beat in eggs until light and fluffy. Fold in flour mixture using a wooden spoon; stir just until mixed. Pour in boiling water and add candied and grated ginger. Gently stir until evenly mixed.

Pour batter into a well greased and floured bundt pan or funnel pan.

Bake at 350 degrees F in centre of oven until a skewer inserted into the centre comes out clean, about 60 minutes depending on your oven.

Turn onto a wire rack to cool. When cool, glaze with chocolate/nutmeg ganache glaze
