  • 1Preheat oven to 325 degree F.

    Spray a 9 - 12 cup Bundt cake pan with non stick cooking spray - I use bakers secret.

  • 3In a medium bowl, whisk together, flour, soda, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, candied ginger and salt. Set aside.
  • 4In a medium sized bowl; mix potatoes with well drained pineapple, until potatoes are smooth.
  • 5Add oil and sugar, mix until well blended. Add eggs 2 at a time, blending well after each addition.
  • 6Now, add flour mixture and beat until well blended. Stir in vanilla.
  • 7Pour batter into prepared Bundt pan. Bake for 60 - 65 minutes or until pick inserted comes out clean.
  • 8Cool cake on rack for 15 minutes, carefully turn cake onto serving platter and finish cooling completely. Make glaze when cake is just luke warm.
  • 9Glaze:

    Sift powdered sugar in mixing bowl with chopped pecans.

    In a medium saucepan; add cream, sugar and butter. Over low heat; melt butter and sugar together, until sugar is melted. Bring to a boil, stirring continuously for 2 minutes.

    Pour into the confectioners' sugar and pecan mixture. Whisk until smooth...if you want a thicker glaze add more sugar. I let it set up for a few minutes, then pour over cake. Delicious!
