Once the holiday season comes along, I am baking allllll the time. I love baking all of my family's traditional cookies, but I also love experimenting! One of my most successful experiments resulted in this recipe, so I wanted to share it. This gingerbread snack cake is the perfect treat to have around when you’re itching for a sweet, festive snack. When I made this cake, it was the first time I had ever made anything gingerbread. I didn’t know what I was missing! The molasses has a really unique, rich flavor and the cake is super moist. This cake tastes delicious plain, or you can serve it with whipped coconut cream to make it extra special!Ingredients:2 cups all-purpose GF flour⅓ cup almond flour½ cup coconut oil, softened1 cup molasses½ cup hot water1 egg¾ tsp xanthan gum1 tsp baking soda1 tsp ginger1 tsp cinnamon¾ tsp saltSteps:
