Gluten Free Gingerbread Cake

My husband loves molasses in anything from molasses cookies to molasses milk. Yes, instead of chocolate milk, he had been known to drink molasses milk, which is just what it sounds like. It is milk with molasses stirred in.

I enjoy molasses, but not nearly as much as he does. And molasses milk is something I doubt I will ever learn to enjoy.

When it comes to gluten free baking I find that I tend to recreate and come up with my favorite gluten free foods, but forget about the others in my family. After all, when my husband wants a doughnut he can go get one, I cannot.

However, since I cook and bake mainly gluten free, I am really trying to focus more and more on the foods my whole family misses. Before going gluten free I baked all the time. My family is used to homemade bread, cakes, cookies, and more. They miss all the baked goods that I used to do and I need to remember that more often.

So, this gluten free gingerbread cake was made with my husband in mind. I found a recipe in an cookbook that I have, that is full of old fashioned type recipes. When I saw the  recipe for gingerbread cake, I knew it would be the perfect cake to recreate for my family. And it is great for the holidays.

My husband claims that no one would ever know this is gluten free. He might just have eaten most of the cake all by himself and when a regular eating person eats that much of a gluten free cake, you know it is good.

  1. Thank you! Gingerbread is something I love at this time of year. Buttermilk is going to be added to my grocery list so I can make this.

  2. Julie Huey says:

    You make the best, the absolute best, gluten-free cakes on the face of this planet Lynn! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

  3. I just noticed no oven temperature. 350 degrees? I am planning this for tonight’s dessert (and hopefully some leftovers for snacks through the weekend). With my small family (just three of us) I am going to halve it for a 9″ square pan.

  4. What do you think would be the difference if i used all rice flour (maybe brown) since i can’t find sweet rice flour? would it be too gritty? this would be my first attempt at a gf cake (not a mix!)
