We can show our support in many ways.  It doesn’t always have to be in big & bold ways. A series of small acts can really add up, especially in our current state.

Support can mean volunteering at school. It can be hosting a group of people who inspire action to share a meal. It could be gathering a group of people to help a family in need. It could be writing letters to help advocate for change.  It could be dropping a cake off to first responders who worked tirelessly through trauma. It could be really listening to what someone has to say.

This Spiced Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Molasses Glaze recipe comes from Julia Turshen’s latest book, Feed the Resistance.  Inside the book, you’ll find many recipes to help fuel your gatherings, ideas for places to reach out as well as things you can do to help that take less than 10 minutes. This book is here to help inspire ACTION.

Because honestly, food has the power to unite us all.

How did this cake turn out? Really well. So well in fact that I thought to myself…hmm this tastes like a pumpkin spice cake but I can’t believe there’s no pumpkin in there, let me have ANOTHER (and another) piece to make sure I’m really tasting what I am tasting.

I made this cake to share with my neighbors. Because community + support starts in your own neighborhood!

Let’s gather our ingredients. My phone and camera were shorting out when I went to take photos. Is mercury in retrograde???  So, I drew the ingredients!

recipe from Feed the Resistance

Spiced Brown Sugar Pound Cake with Molasses Glaze

.

serves 10

  • non-stick baking spray
  • 1  1/2 cups unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 cups packed light brown sugar
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 5 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 1 tablespoon molasses
  • 2 tablespoons rum

Preheat the oven to 325F. Spray a 10 cup bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.

Place butter, brown sugar, granulated sugar, and salt in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the whisk attachment and mix on high speed until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs one at a time, and mix until well incorporated. Slow the mixer to its lowest speed and carefully add in the flour in intervals of 1 cup. Add the sour cream and 1 tablespoon of vanilla. Mix in the cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves until just combined.

Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out moist, but mostly clean, about 65-75 minutes.

Cool the cake for 10 minutes then invert onto a cooling rack and cool to room temperature.

In a small bowl, whisk together the confectioner’s sugar, molasses, rum, and the remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla until smooth and pourable. Drizzle over the cake and serve.

    your photos are just GORGEOUS!!! That texture of the cake looks unreal so fluffy and delicious. YUM

  • Stasha

    This looks amazing! Going to make it for a birthday potluck this weekend. Question about the glaze- there are going to be a number of people at the party who can’t have any alcohol. Is there something you’d recommend as a good substitute?

    • Jamie

      Oooh, I bet maple syrup would be good, or maybe just more vanilla. You used to be able to get artificial rum flavoring too, but not sure that’s still available?

  • Megan

    Looks so darn yummy… I need to get myself a bundt pan! Ps love the ingredient drawing.

  • Jamie

    Oh man, the texture of that cake is giving me so many heart-eye feelings. Please tell me it tastes like a biscoff cookie? Dipped in rum?

  • Robyn

    I have the same bundt pan! I love it, but haven’t used it in a while. Need to fix that. I love your drawing of the ingredients :)

  • Lori

    This looks divine!

  • Carrie Brown

    Love the drawing of your ingredients! You can do no wrong, even with technical malfunctions! But I do feel like mercury is in retrograde.. what is this week? and BTW this looks so yummy – i bet your neighbors loved it

    Must make this cake soon! It’ll motivate me to rectify the no bundt pan situation. I love the sentiment of using food to build positive connections and to effect change. We could all use more of that in the world.

  • Heather P.

    So dense and gooey. I watched your IG story of this and knew you were planning to cook from either the Paleo or Turshen books….figured this had to be a Resistance recipe!

  • Ann

    That texture looks out of this world.

  • Megan

    yay Yay YAY! My mom is going to love this cake! Can’t wait to make it and share it. :)

  • Ellen

    This looks fantastic! If I made it in loaf pans instead of a bundt pan, how many loaves would this make & how much should the baking time be adjusted by? Thanks.

    • Tracy

      oh gosh. i think it should probably make two? if you’re going to bake them at the same time, i think you should check at 30/50/60 minutes to see how they’re doing.

      • lisahoopz

        Hi – I made two loaves and they still took a while to bake – 55 and 60 minutes (my loaf pans are slightly different shapes and one took slightly longer to bake. A splendid cake

  • Amy

    This looks delectable, but I do have one question – in the recipe, you say to use the whisk attachment for the mixer, but in your photos, it looks like you are using the paddle attachment. Which one is correct? This looks too good to make a mistake on! Thanks!

  • Serean

    I just popped this in the oven for a charity bake sale at work tomorrow. My full sized bundt pan was full to the tippy top. In your photos your pan is far less full. Did you make a half recipe?

  • Rahul Upadhyay

    Brown sugar with pound cake is the best combination one can ever have.

  • Tracy

    Hi Tracy-
    I made this last night and it was divine!
    I tend to be more of a cook than a baker, but have decided to turn off the news and frustrating chatter and bake my way through fall and winter to share with my family, friends and neighbors. So far, everyone is pretty happy about it…
    This cake was beautiful and made my house smell like a dream on a dreary Seattle day. Your recipes are always spot on-thanks for sharing!

    I made a 1/2 recipe of this (just because I wasn’t making it for any particular occasion apart from that I really wanted to eat it, so I didn’t want to have TOO much cake lying around). It was delicious, the texture is out of this world! Even my toddler who is firmly chocolate-cake-or-bust was a big fan.

    • Tracy

      I am so glad you loved it too! The texture is unreal! I was worried about it not having any baking powder or soda but it was perfect!
