Chocolate-Ginger Cake with Bourbon Sauce
This may look like a classic chocolate Bundt cake, but one bite tells you it's something more. Generous amounts of ground and freshly grated ginger give it a spice that's just right for the season. A bourbon-spiked sauce adds another layer of richness and flavor.
Because ginger is fibrous, it can be difficult to grate. But if you store the whole unpeeled root in the freezer, it will grate cleanly. Wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, it will keep frozen for several months. When you want some, peel the part you need while it's still frozen, then grate; return the rest to the freezer.
