Gingerbread coffee cake
I love gingerbread--cookies, muffins or cake--and make it throughout the year. I lost most of my recipes on the dead hard drive, so when I wanted one for my fancy "new" Bundt pan, so I Googled until I found this recipe by Phil Lempert. It calls for the addition of ground coffee and brewed coffee. I used some Christmas coffee instead of Dunkin Donuts. One caution: this cake is really too soft to unmold well from a detailed Bundt pan. Also, it was so moist that a dusting of powdered sugar (even after well cooled) kept melting into the exterior.
