Homemade Classic Christmas Gingerbread Cake

Homemade Classic Christmas Gingerbread Cake

This homemade gingerbread cake recipe is a tried-and-true recipe passed down by Melanie's great uncle Willard Caseley.  Willard served in WWII, and growing up Melanie's mom made this recipe all the time.  Wanting to keep the tradition going, Melanie has transformed this recipe into a mouth-watering, delicious gingerbread recipe without all of the added sugar.    This cake is best enjoyed fresh out of the oven, with a dollop of our sugar-free cream cheese icing.  From Melanie's family to yours, xo.

  • 1/3 cup coconut flour
  • 3 large eggs

  • 1/3 cup dark molasses
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
