Gingerbread Cake

  • 1 box spice cake mix {15.25 ounces}
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • cup vegetable oil
  • ½ cup molasses
  • ½ cup milk {I used 1%}
  • 3 eggs


  • 1 cup prepared cream cheese frosting {or vanilla}
  • 3 tablespoons caramel topping
  • 2 tablespoons gingerbread sprinkles


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Prepare your bundt pan by liberally spraying it with nonstick spray and set aside.

Gingerbread Cake

  1. Combine the spice cake mix, ground ginger, cinnamon, vegetable oil, molasses, milk and eggs in a medium bowl. Use a handheld {or stand} mixer to combine the ingredients until everything is incorporated. Pour the gingerbread cake batter into the prepared Bundt pan, making sure it is in an even layer.

  2. Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out with only a few crumbs. Remove from the oven and allow the cake to cool for 10 minutes before inverting the Bundt cake onto your serving plate.

  3. Once the cake is completely cooled, spread the prepared frosting over the top of the cake, drizzle the frosting with caramel topping and sprinkle with gingerbread sprinkles. Serve or store covered in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. This cake can also be frozen for up to 3 months.

Recipe Notes

NOTE:  Add orange zest to the cake batter and prepared frosting for a fresh flavor.
