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.
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.
Twin Cakes Recipe: Orange gingerbread bundt cake drizzled with chocolate
prep-time: 5 minutes
bake-time: varies – 20-25 minutes
makes 6 bundt cakes
- 2 cups + 2 tbsp gluten free flour blend
- 2 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 2 1/4 tsp ground ginger
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 2/3 cup molasses
- 2/3 cup hot water
- 1/4 cup oil (we use coconut oil)
pre-heat oven – 325 degrees.
mix flours with baking soda and spices, set aside. heat up water as you mix sugar, oil, and molasses together, then add in hot water. this breaks up the molasses, making it easier to work with. now stir in your flour. batter will be on the thin side.
pour gingerbread cake batter into lightly greased bundt pans. we used individual bundt cake pan, you can find the bundt cake (fluted tube pan) here.
bake and test around 20 minutes. toothpick should come out clean.
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.
Can you believe Christmas is this Sunday??? crazy
Hope everyone is getting things checked off their shopping list, having fun making new Christmas memories, and safe travels!!
Till next time,
L & M
