Things you should know about me:
- I love Christmas music.
- I love fall and winter. Gloomy, cloudy days make me really happy!
- I love holiday smells. Cloves, oranges, gingerbread, fresh baked bread, pumpkin…. *sigh* it’s heavenly.
Now that you know a few basic “Whitney” facts, I think we’re great friends! And now would be a good time to tell you I’m the person who listens to Christmas music in October. I caved. I opened my Pandora App and selected the “Kenny G Holiday” Pandora station. (BEST Christmas music ever, BTW). Last year, I told myself I wasn’t going to listen to Christmas music until November 1st. Although I didn’t make it to November, I’m proud of my progress! In 2016 I had good ole Kenny G holiday music playing in September. Baby steps…baby steps…
I should probably tell you I watched The Polar Express with my 3 year old last week too… So there you have it! I’m ready for Christmas! Will it snow already?? I’m sure you think my Christmas tree is up at this very moment. Nope. That goes up one week before Thanksgiving. I do have some self control. Alright alright, lets talk gingerbread bundt cake!

Preheat the oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 10 cup bundt pan. * Set aside.
In a medium sized bowl whisk the dry ingredients, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and spices.
