Pour 1/3 of dry flour and spice mix into the wet molasses mix.

Then pour in 1/3 of the hot water and mix on medium-low until blended.

Pour in the remaining flour and water by alternating in thirds until batter is fully combined.

Spray the bundt cake pan cavities with nonstick cooking spray until well coated. Complete this step right before pouring the batter into the cavities, to ensure that the bundt cakes properly release from the pan.

Use 1/4 measuring cup to scoop batter into bundt cake cavities.

Bake bundt cakes in the oven for 16 minutes. 

Check the bundt cakes right at 16 minutes by placing a toothpick in the center of each. When it comes out clean, they’re done! 

Transfer to a cooling rack immediately. 

Allow the bundt pan to cool for at least 10 minutes, then flip upside down. The bundt cakes should release from the pan cleanly.

Allow to fully cool before glazing.

For the Vanilla Glaze:

Once the bundt cakes have cooled, pour icing sugar into a glass bowl. 

Pour in McCormick Pure Vanilla Extract and 1 tbsp of water. 

Stir until well combined. If the glaze is still too thick, pour in half of the second tbsp of water stirring until combined. Add the remaining water if necessary, and a few extra drops at a time to reach the desired consistency.

When ready, the glaze should still be slightly thick but run off the spoon.

The glaze will harden when not in use, so spoon over the tops of the cooled bundt cakes immediately.
