My husband Ken loves this bundt cake with its bits of crystallized ginger. Feel free to drizzle it with a vanilla glaze. —Nancy Zimmerman, Cape May Court House, NJ

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 10-in. fluted tube pan. In a large bowl, beat brown sugar, coffee, oil, molasses and sour cream. Add eggs; beat until well blended. In another bowl, whisk flour, ground ginger, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually beat into molasses mixture. Stir in walnuts and crystallized ginger.
  2. Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 40-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
  3. For glaze, in a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar, lemon peel and enough lemon juice to reach a drizzling consistency. Drizzle over cake; sprinkle with additional crystallized ginger. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor’s Note: To remove cakes easily, use solid shortening to grease plain and fluted tube pans. To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
