Gluten free orange gingerbread bundt cake

by Lori and Michelle on December 21, 2011

glad everyone has been enjoy our pumpkin kefir pancakes…we made them again this morning, so good! honestly think we could never get sick of pumpkin or pancakes…

but as much as we love our pumpkin, we love spice. we love molasses. and of course love chocolate.

vegan gingerbread cake

today’s recipe is one we used to make and sell when did farmers markets a few years ago. actually most of our recipes have been inspired because of our bakery- Twin Cakes Bakery. we used to baked all the time for people. we love it. and now that we no longer do farmers markets,

we thought sharing our bakery’s recipes here on the blog would be a great way to share our love of tasty, healthy gluten free recipes.

we just love baking in our individual bundt cake pan, because it requires little frosting as the cakes are beautiful as is, plus already portioned out to be the right serving size.

we just topped our gluten-free orange gingerbread cakes with some coconut butter mixed with maple syrup and orange zest. then off course add in some chocolate to finish the cakes off.

nothing beats a cake drizzled with chocolate!

we used this chocolate sauce

a little orange. spice. chocolate. the flavors of winter in a cake, what can be better?

this gluten free gingerbread bundt cake has a soft crumb with a good chew and balanced flavor.

Sounds so good and simple! Ginger and molasses always gets me, but the orange addition is even more alluring.

I resubscribed within my own blogger reader and that didn’t work, so I’ll try doing the other suggestions in your post on it.

For awhile there I wasn’t able to get into your site…fortunately, it’s okay now. It was my computer, don’t worry! Anyway, those little cakes look so good! And I love orange in things.
