Pumpkin Angel Food Cake with Ginger-Cream Filling

My mother-in-law got this recipe from a quilting class and I decided to try it out. It was a big hit! The ginger flavor is subtle while the pumpkin is light and airy. A different twist for using pumpkin.

Makes 12 servings


For Cake:
1 box (1-lb) Betty Crocker white angel food cake mix
1 tablespoon all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
3/4 cup canned pumpkin
1 cup cold water

For Ginger Cream Filling:

2 cups whipping cream
1/4 cup powdered sugar
2 tablespoons finely chopped crystallized ginger

1. Move oven rack to lowest position. Heat oven to 350F. In extra-large glass or
metal bowl, beat cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 1 minutes. Pour into un-greased 10-inch angel food (tube) cake pan.

2. Bake 37 to 47 minutes, or until crust is dark golden brown and cracks are dry. Immediately turn pan upside down onto heat-proof funnel or glass bottle. Let hang about 2 hours, or until cake is completely cool. Loosen cake from side of pan with knife or long metal spatula. Turn cake upside down onto serving plate.

3. In chilled large bowl, beat whipping cream and powdered sugar with electric mixer on high until stiff. Fold in ginger. Cut cake horizontally in half to make two even layers. Spread half of the filing on bottom layer; replace top of cake and spread remaining filling on top of cake. Sprinkle with additional pumpkin pie spice, if desired.
