In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking soda, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground nutmeg, and ground cloves.

When the mixture is fluffy, add the molasses and mix to combine. Scrape down the sides to ensure you get every nook and cranny.

Step 5

Add half of the dry ingredients mixture to the butter, egg, and sugar mixture. Use a spatula to gently fold it in.


Step 6

Add the milk mixture—again, gently folding in. Then, finally, add the remaining flour mixture.


Step 7

Bake the gingerbread bundt cake for 40-50 minutes until, when you gently press the center of the cake, it bounces back.


Step 8

Brown the butter, then, whisk in the powdered sugar. Add the heavy cream, one tablespoon at a time, until you reach your desired consistency. I like a thick but pourable texture.

Make the Glaze

Step 9

Either pour the glaze from the pot carefully or use a spoon to drizzle the glaze on top of the bundt cake.
