      WOW this cake is a WINNER! I LOVE ginger and lemons so had to make this. I subbed lowfat yogurt for the sour cream and increased the candied ginger but otherwise followed the recipe. Mine baked for 1 hour. It turned out so soft, moist and dense with such a nice ginger flavor. I microwaved the glaze in a pyrex. The lemon glaze is perfect with it but I would suggest adding to the directions to poke holes all over the cake with a long skewer so that the glaze can sink in better. So so good. This is a keeper recipe. Made for PAC Spring 2007.

      This cake is exceptional! I followed the recipe as written except for eyeballing the fresh and crystallized ginger as well as the lemon zest. As Engrossed suggested I poked holes in the cake with a skewer. The next time I make this, I will get the grated ginger, pureed ginger and lemon zest ready ahead of time as this cake requires some well worth it extra labor. I served it for my Mom’s birthday along with fresh pineapple and blackberries. My step-father even said this was the best Bundt cake he had ever tasted!
