Gingerbread Spice Bundt Cake 

Yield: 16 servings.

99% less-residue cooking spray or baking spray with flour
1 yellow cake mix 
1 3.4-oz. package of Jello® instant vanilla pudding 
1½ tsps. ground ginger
1 tsp. cinnamon
¼ tsp. ground nutmeg
¼ tsp cloves
1/8 tsp. cardamom (optional)  
3 eggs plus 2 egg whites
2 tbsp. coconut oil
2/3 cup strong brewed coffee, warm or cold
½ cup cups low-fat buttermilk 
1/3 cup light or dark molasses   
¼ cup powdered sugar for dusting

1. Lightly spray a 10-inch Bundt cake pan or 13- by 9-inch baking pan a with 99% less-residue
nonstick baking spray with flour or spray lightly with cooking spray and dust with flour. Note: You can use a 99% less-residue, nonstick baking or cooking spray on all baking pans. This product will not damage nonstick surfaces.

2. Preheat oven to 325 F. Pour cake mix into a large mixing bowl together with dry pudding mix, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, and cardamom. Stir all ingredients together until combined.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk together eggs, egg whites, oil, coffee, buttermilk, and molasses until well combined.  

4. Add liquid ingredients to the cake mix and blend together using an electric mixer on medium speed for 2 minutes. Do not over mix.

5. Pour batter into pan and smooth out top. Bake for 38-40 minutes or until you can insert a toothpick into cake and it comes out clean. Remove cake from oven and cool in the pan for 15 minutes. Carefully invert the pan onto a serving plate and remove. Allow cake to cool completely, 1 to 2 hours.

6. Once cake has cooled completely, dust top and sides with powdered sugar. Before serving, dust cake again lightly with powdered sugar, if necessary.
