Three forms of ginger lend a sweet-spicy taste to traditional pound cake.

Ingredients

3
cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons ground ginger
1
teaspoon baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
2 1/2
cups sugar
1 1/4
cups butter, softened (do not use margarine)
1
tablespoon grated gingerroot
1
teaspoon vanilla
5
eggs
3/4
cup milk
1/2
cup finely chopped crystallized ginger

Directions

  • 1 Heat oven to 350°F. Spray 12-cup fluted tube cake pan or 10-inch angel food cake pan with baking spray with flour.
  • 2 In medium bowl, mix flour, ground ginger, baking powder and salt; set aside. In large bowl, beat sugar, butter, gingerroot, vanilla and eggs with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds, scraping bowl constantly. Beat on high speed 5 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. On low speed, beat in flour mixture alternately with milk. Fold in crystallized ginger until evenly mixed. Spread in pan.

Expert Tips

Crystallized ginger is fresh gingerroot that has been cooked in a sugar syrup, then coated with sugar. It has that great ginger bite along with the sweet flavor.

Pound cake freezes beautifully. Wrap the cooled cake in heavy-duty foil, then place it in a resealable plastic bag. Freeze up to one month.
