  • ½ cup Granulated sugar
  • ½ cup Water
  • ½ cup Minced fresh ginger


  • 1 ½ cups Packed light brown sugar 
  • 1 cup Vanilla porter or milk stout 
  • cup Vegetable oil  
  • ½ cup Molasses
  • ½ cup Sour cream 
  • 3 Eggs


  • 2 ¼ cups All-purpose flour 
  • 2 tsp. Baking powder
  • 2 tsp. Ground ginger 
  • 1 tsp. Ground cinnamon    
  • ¾ tsp. Freshly grated nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. Ground allspice
  • ½ tsp. Table salt
  • ¼ tsp. Baking soda 
  • tsp. Ground cloves
  • Pinch of ground cardamom


  • 2 cups Heavy cream 
  • 2 tbsp. Granulated sugar 
  • 2 tsp. Pure vanilla extract 
  • Chopped crystallized ginger


  • Preheat oven to 350°. Liberally coat a 10– to 15–cup Bundt pan with softened butter and turbinado sugar.
  • For the syrup, heat granulated sugar, water, and ginger in a saucepan over medium-high until it boils. Reduce heat to medium-low; simmer syrup 10 minutes. Strain syrup, reserving ginger.
  • For the cake, whisk together brown sugar, porter, oil, molasses, and reserved ginger. Whisk together sour cream and eggs until smooth; whisk into porter mixture.
  • Sift together flour, baking powder, ground ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, salt, baking soda, cloves, and cardamom; whisk into wet mixture in 3 to 4 increments.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan; bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean and cake pulls away from edges of pan, about 1 hour. Let cake cool in pan on a rack, 45 minutes.
  • Poke cake with a skewer; drizzle ginger syrup over top. Invert cake onto a rack (tap pan to release, if necessary); let cool completely.
  • For the topping, whip cream to soft peaks. Add 2 Tbsp. granulated sugar and vanilla; whip to medium-firm peaks. Serve cake with whipped cream topped with crystallized ginger.
