Gluten free gingerbread is fully of toasty warm spices, perfect for both Thanksgiving and Christmas treats. Happy Thanksgiving from Food Fanatic!
This gluten free gingerbread is nice and moist and basically tastes like Christmas. Cozy, warm, and relatively healthy, this is a perfect addition to any holiday gathering. I love gingerbread anything, like these grain-free soft and chewy ginger cookies, and wanted to see how a classic gingerbread recipe would come out when made grain-free. And it was just as delicious as the traditional version!
The gingerbread is delicious on its own, but it was a bit boring and drab looking. A dollop of lemon cream cheese frosting and candied ginger remedied that in the most amazing way! The gingerbread itself is lightly naturally sweetened with just maple syrup and molasses, so if you prefer things on the sweeter side, you'll definitely want to add the lemon frosting.
The cake is bordering on the thin side, so if you'd like it thicker, you can bake it in a 9" x 5" loaf bake. Be sure to adjust the baking time accordingly! It'll likely take an extra 8 - 12 minutes.
Do note that the gingerbread firms up too much in the refrigerator, so you need to let it come to room temperature or reheat it for a few seconds in the microwave before serving. If the frosting is already on the gingerbread, you unfortunately can't microwave it or you'll end up with a melty mess.
