Gluten-free spice cake has been missing in my collection. I’m slowly getting into the Christmas spirit, especially walking around the stores. Everywhere there are Christmas sweets, starting with gingerbread, cookies, and roasted almonds. I immediately bought a new package of gingerbread spice to bake many delicious things. Then I realized that I don’t even have a gluten-free spice cake on my site yet. This urgently needs to be changed and I immediately set to work. In my opinion, the result is impressive. The cake is moist, fluffy, deliciously flavored and hopefully you’ll like it as much as I do.
Gluten free vegan spice cake
The ingredients for this fine cake are quickly and easily mixed together. Gluten-free flour mix, oat flour, almond flour, raw cane sugar, cocoa powder, bourbon vanilla, gingerbread spice, baking powder. I mix the dry ingredients with a whisk to dissolve any small lumps in advance. Add to this vegetable milk, coconut oil and applesauce. I use the applesauce for a better binding and to save oil.
Now the dough is finally stirred together and goes directly into the baking pan. After just under an hour in the oven, it is also ready and allowed to cool in peace. After that, the only thing missing is the frosting, which I also stir together powdered sugar and a small sip of plant milk. A delicate touch is required here, because just a little too much milk can cause the glaze to become too runny.
TIP: If you don’t want to use raw cane sugar, then you can also use coconut blossom sugar, xylitol or another sugar of your choice.
