The Holidays might be behind us, but as long as there’s snow on the ground gingerbread will be the flavour of the season.
We brought you a recipe for a classic gingersnap cookie a few days ago and now we’ve taken the same warming spices, and ferrous molasses tang and made them into a light and moist cake that is best served with tea or a warm cup of mulled wine.
If you’ve followed our blog for a while now you may have noticed that we love the combination of cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg. With slight notes of cloves and all spice these mini-bundt cakes bring all of our favourite flavours to the forefront.
This recipe makes 6 mini bundt-cakes but if you don’t have the proper pan to bake them this way you can make one large loaf (think banana bread but gingerspiced), or ~12 gingerbread cupcakes (perfect topped with our maple cashew cream cheese frosting).
To make the batter simply:
Who said baking had to be hard?
We hope you all had a wonderful Holiday season! Happy New Year’s and may it be full of nutritious meals, and soul warming sweets. If you recreate any of our recipes don’t forget to tag us on instagram at @lavenderandlavish so we can check ’em out!
