Gingerbread Cake-Gluten Free

This gluten free Gingerbread Cake will be the beginning of a new tradition at holiday meals!  I was so impressed with this moist, richly flavoured cake.  

I topped it off with Betty Crocker white icing, into which I had stirred some finely chopped crystallized ginger.

The first thing I did was to finely chop some crystallized ginger and set it aside.

Then I dumped some margarine and lightly packed brown sugar into a large mixing bowl.

Using an electric hand mixer I beat them together until they were light and fluffy.

Next I poured some fancy molasses into the bowl.

I beat in the molasses until creamy.

Then I added 2 large eggs, and some lemon juice.

Beat in the eggs and lemon juice using the electric mixer.

Now I dumped in some Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Baking Flour, meringue powder, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, ginger and salt.

I used a large wooden spoon to stir the dry ingredients into the wet batter in the bowl.

After the ingredients were blended I mixed the baking soda into the boiling water and then poured the water into the batter.  I stirred quickly.

Next I dumped in half of the prepared crystallized ginger that I had set aside.

I stirred in the ginger before scraping the batter into a 9 x 13 inch pan that had been sprayed with cooking spray.

To bake I placed it in a 350F oven for 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center came out clean and it was brown around the edges.

I allowed the cake to cool completely in the pan.  I chose to frost it with Betty Crocker White Frosting.

Before frosting I stirred the remaining finely chopped crystallized ginger into the frosting.

You could also cut it into squares without frosting and dust the pieces with icing sugar before serving.
