Gingerbread Cake - Vegan and Gluten-Free
Ingredients50 m servings 166
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
- Mix amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
- Stir flax meal and 6 tablespoons water together in a separate bowl. Add agave nectar, canola oil, molasses, grated fresh ginger, and lemon zest; stir to combine. Pour wet ingredients into the well in the flour mixture; mix well. Gradually stir boiling water into the batter until fully incorporated. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.
- Cook's Note:
- If you're not vegan, you can use 2 eggs instead of the ground flax. This recipe is also good with fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries. Also excellent with a cashew cream icing or with coconut cream frosting.
- You can also choose to make 2 dozen muffins with the batter.

I added a lot more ginger, and used eggs. I also made a glaze to go over the top with candied ginger pieces. It's dense and moist, and got compliments from the non-gluten-free people, too. Mo...
