Gluten Free Gingerbread Cake

Moist and tender gluten free gingerbread cake, perfectly spiced and ready for the holidays or any time at all. Make this easy snack cake in one bowl!

A simple recipe, really

I first developed the recipe for this gluten free gingerbread cake way, way back in 2011. All these years later, the recipe still works exactly as written. I’m usually a hopeless tinkerer, but this cake is undeniable, just as it is.

If you look at the list of ingredients, at first glance it might seem a bit long. But this is one of those dump-’em-in one after the other recipes, with the batter made in one large bowl. You don’t even have to mix the wet ingredients together with the dry until everything has been added.

The recipe calls for 2 full teaspoons of each ground cinnamon and ground ginger. But the spices are perfectly balanced with honey, maple … Read more

Gluten Free Cinnamon Roll Cupcakes

Moist and tender gluten free cinnamon roll cupcakes have all the flavor of the best cinnamon roll, made quick and easy in a muffin tin.

The flavor that unites us

You know how some people are chocolate people, and others are vanilla people? Well, almost everyone is a cinnamon-sugar person (I’m sure some of you hate the stuff, but I’ve yet to hear about it—and readers aren’t usually shy about sharing what they don’t like!).

We have plenty of recipes for cinnamon rolls here on the blog, but there is rolling and shaping involved in every single one of them. These gluten free cinnamon roll cupcakes are for those times when you just can’t be bothered to roll and shape! 

The tops have a lightly crunchy cinnamon-sugar crust, and the cake is tender and buttery and not-too-sweet. Inside, there’s a perfect cinnamon-sugar swirl. But I promise it’s simple to do.… Read more

Gluten Free Apple Bread

This recipe for gluten free apple bread is an easy quick bread made from scratch with rich apple butter and all the right warm spices.

When you think of apple bread (do you think of apple bread?), you may imagine a quick bread (which is really more like a cake in loaf form, just with a slightly firmer crumb) with chunks of apple in it. I’ve got something even better for you, though.

This apple bread is made with less butter than you might imagine combined with rich, thick, sweet, and spicy apple butter. Apple butter isn’t like nut butter, which is mostly fat (not that fat isn’t lovely; it is!). It’s everything that applesauce wanted to be, and failed. Sorry applesauce! Love you still!

I make my own apple butter (recipe link below), like I make my own pumpkin butter, because it’s way cheaper and always better. But you … Read more

Vanilla Cake (The Finest)

Are you looking for a wonderful dessert to observe the right Italian meal, romantic wedding ceremony cake, or only a recipe to interrupt the chocolate cake monotony? Principally a cake needs to be completely blended with butter or margarine and sugar in the mixture of but once more completely blended flour and egg-whites and yolks, both earlier than baking. The clever approach of baking a cake is to hold out the entire thing meticulously and to place in as a lot air to the combination as doable. Carry out this course of energetically and wait for the cream to turn pastel and velvety; since this blend truly is meant to be lighter from the time it was first begun. Such an easy, yummy cake! I’ve made it probably a dozen occasions. I fluctuate the frosting between fudge, lemon, and peanut butter, or whatever sounds good on a given day…and it … Read more

One Bowl Gluten Free Pumpkin Bread

Classic gluten free pumpkin bread, made simply with just the right spices in one bowl. A moist, tender celebration of fall!

The brilliant color of the loaf comes from the pumpkin (of course), and the pumpkin pie spice. That’s just a simple, fall-like blend of cinnamon, ginger, allspice, cloves and nutmeg.

This pumpkin bread recipe is only lightly sweet, and very satisfying. The spices make it smell like fall, and the pumpkin butter make for the perfect rich, fall taste and tender texture.

Serve it for breakfast, instead of those fake pumpkin “flavored” cereals in the grocery store. I don’t even want to know what is in those!

What’s the batter like for this quick bread?

Even though the word “bread” is in the name of the recipe, this is a quick bread, not a sandwich bread. A quick bread is like a muffin or cake, but baked in a loaf … Read more
