"Release" week #giveaway for GIRL ON THE RUN by @DarylWoodGerber

From Daryl aka Avery:

I know many of you expect "release week" to be the first Tuesday of the month for mysteries...

...like for Lucy Burdette's
KILLER TAKEOUT!

Congrats, Lucy! I love this series!!!

...but for my stand-alone suspense          GIRL ON THE RUN, I'm releasing it on my husband's birthday, April 9th!

This Saturday.

So welcome to an extra-long "release" week!


GIRL ON THE RUN is getting a lot of early praise:

“Spellbound from start to finish. This author grabbed my attention and wouldn’t let go. A fantastic debut into the suspense genre.” ~Escape With Dollycas Into A Good Book

“All I can say is WOW. This is an action packed riveting thriller.” ~ Deb Forbes Mystery Reading Nook Blog 

I've got a giveaway below to gear you up for fun and hopefully sharing this recipe plus my news! LEAVE A COMMENT!

And don't miss my VIRTUAL release party on Sunday, the 10th, via my Facebook author page.

Also, for any of you who DO purchase and read GIRL ON THE RUN or KILLER TAKEOUT, if you feel the urge, please leave a review. Don't know how?  You'll find a tutorial for How To Review on my website under News and Events.

For today's recipe, I thought I'd share one of my favorite cakes, a real comfort food that goes well with tea and a good book. During the Christmas season, I saw the recipe in a Williams Sonoma magazine - I LOVE browsing through cookware magazines - and tweaked it to be gluten-free. It's so moist. Perfect for any time of the year.  And, let's face it, any cake made in a bundt pan looks pretty. They're like no-fail cakes, right?

It's spicy. It's dense. It's delicious!


Gingerbread Bundt Cake
Gluten-free

Ingredients:

Cake:

2 ½ cups GF flour (equal sweet rice flour and tapioca starch)
2 teaspoons cinnamon
3 teaspoons ginger
1 teaspoon allspice
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon nutmeg
½ teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons baking powder
½ teaspoon xanthan gum
¾ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 ½ cups brown sugar, packed
2 large eggs
½ cup molasses
1 cup water

Glaze (if desired):

1/3 cup water
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4  teaspoon ginger
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
¾ cup granulated sugar

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease a 10-cup Bundt pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, spices, salt, baking soda, baking powder and xanthan gum.  Set aside.


In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and sugar until fluffy. 





Add the eggs. Remember to scrape the bottom to incorporate. Add the molasses and stir.

Add the GF flour mixture and the water, alternating between the two, finishing with the GF flours. Mix until smooth.

Pour the batter into the prepared Bundt pan. If necessary, smooth the top with a spatula.


Bake the cake for 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick come out clean.

THE GLAZE: While the cake is baking, making the glaze by stirring together the water, spices and sugar. Set it aside.

Remove the cake from the oven, cool it in the pan for 20 minutes, then turn it out onto a rack. 10 minutes later, set the cake on your desired serving dish.



Brush the glaze (if desired) over the cake and then allow the cake to cool completely before serving.




NOTE: This cake does not rise a lot. It’s dense and delicious.  I made it a second time, when my sister was visiting, and it was delicious without the glaze and served with ice cream.
