Lexington Bourbon Cake with Fresh Ginger


Bourbon, elevated: We were enchanted with Lexington, Ky, the moment we arrived and, as soon as we returned to the bakery, created this gorgeous salute to that beautiful city in the middle of horse & bourbon country. This is a stunning gift and an extravagant dessert, packaged in a platinum tin, and it’s made with a good amount of top-shelf bourbon, fresh ginger, crystallized ginger, lemon & orange zest, and finished off with more bourbon in a honey glaze infused with ghost peppers. And then we glaze it again. And, best of all, $5 of each purchase benefits the Southern Foodways Alliance, which documents, studies, and celebrates the diverse food cultures of the changing American South.

Started in a Virginia farmhouse over 30 years ago, Brian Noyes’ Red Truck Bakery is one of Condé Nast Traveler’s 13 Destination Bakeries in America. Named after the red 1954 Ford truck Brian used to deliver his rustic baked goods to local country stores, Red Truck Bakery has gained a cult-like following that includes Oprah and former President Barack Obama—with Roadfood’s Jane & Michael Stern being among some of their loudest and proudest early supporters.
