Ingredients

Cake Ingredients

  • 2 3/4 cups (330g) all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Heaping 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup (240 mL) unsweetened plant-based milk (such as almond milk, oat milk, or soy milk)
  • 3/4 cup (180mL) sunflower oil (or other neutral oil)
  • 1/2 cup (120mL) unsulphured molasses (not blackstrap)
  • 1 cup (192g) organic brown sugar, packed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract

Pomegranate Glaze Ingredients

  • 2 cups (240g) organic powdered sugar
  • 4 tablespoons freshly squeezed pomegranate juice + more as needed for color and texture
  • 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

Instructions

Cake Directions

  • Preheat the oven to 350°F/175°C and position the oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  • Generously grease a 10-inch (12-cup) Bundt cake pan (or a 9-inch, 10-cup Bundt cake pan) with a neutral oil, cooking spray, or vegan butter, and sprinkle with flour and dust off any excess flour. You want to make sure you really grease the pan well; otherwise, you will have trouble inverting the cake and some of the cake might stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, ginger, allspice, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves.
  • Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and then add the almond milk, oil, molasses, brown sugar, and vanilla.
  • Using an electric mixer on slow speed, combine the dry and wet ingredients until you have a smooth, thick batter, scraping down the sides of the bowl with a rubber spatula.
  • Pour the cake batter into the greased Bundt pan and smooth the surface with a rubber spatula. Bake the cake in the preheated oven for 40-45 minutes, until the cake is firm and springs back when touched. If you are using a 9-inch (10-cup) Bundt pan, you will likely need to bake the cake for an additional 5 minutes.
  • Allow the cake to rest until it is cool enough to touch. Then, carefully invert it onto a cooling rack. Then drizzle with the Pomegranate Glaze and serve.

Pomegranate Glaze Directions

  • Place the powdered sugar in a large bowl. Add the lemon juice and then the pomegranate juice, one tablespoon, at a time, whisking until smooth and thick. The glaze should be glossy in appearance and the texture should be sticky and pourable. If it is too thin, whisk in more powdered sugar. If it is too thick, add more pomegranate juice.
