A pound cake like with pumpkin and ginger. Recipe from Food Network. I adjusted the servings to 14 from 18 since I cut it into 14 slices.

Recipe Ingredients for Ginger Tea Cake

2 cups cake flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup pumpkin
1/4 cup low-fat buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup light brown sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
2 T finely chopped crystallized ginger

Recipe Directions for Ginger Tea Cake

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F.

  2. Line a large (4 1/2-inch by 9 1/2-inch) metal loaf pan with parchment paper and spray with nonstick cooking spray.

  3. Sift the flour, baking soda, ginger and salt into a medium bowl.

  4. Whisk the pumpkin, buttermilk, and vanilla in another bowl.

  5. Beat the butter with an electric mixer at medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.

  6. Add the light brown sugar and continue beating until light and fluffy, about 4 minutes more.

  7. Add the eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition.

  8. At low speed, add the flour mixture in 3 parts, alternating with the pumpkin mixture in 2 parts, beginning and ending with the flour.

  9. Mix briefly at medium-low speed to make a smooth batter.

  10. Turn off beaters and add the crystallized ginger.

  11. Finish folding batter--which will be thick--by hand with a rubber spatula.

  12. Scrape batter into the prepared pan and smooth the top.

  13. Bake until a cake tester inserted into the cake comes out clean and top springs back when lightly pressed, about 55 minutes.

  14. Cool in pan on a rack 10 to 15 minutes, then invert pan to release cake onto rack to cool.

  15. Dust with confectioners' sugar, if desired. Serve.
