I'll bring a dessert (big surprise!)! How about ginger cake--this is one of my favorites:

1 cup butter
1 1/4 cups packed brown sugar
4 eggs
1/4 cup grated fresh ginger root
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup milk
2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
4 teaspoons ground ginger
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 tablespoons confectioners'
sugar for dusting


Directions
1 Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease
and flour a 9 inch Bundt pan. Sift together the flour,
baking powder, ground ginger, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
2 In a large bowl, cream together the butter and brown
sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a
time, then stir in the grated ginger root and vanilla. Beat
in the flour mixture alternately with the milk, mixing
just until incorporated. Pour batter into prepared pan.
3 Bake in the preheated oven for 45 to 50 minutes, or
until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes
out clean. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes, then turn out
onto a serving plate. Dust lightly with confectioners'
sugar before serving.
