My mom was having a lot of stomach trouble for awhile and my brother and sister-in-law finally convinced her to try going off of gluten to see what happened. (My brother is gluten intolerant himself.) She discovered that her stomach felt better when she ate less wheat, so she is avoiding it most of the time. She made this change shortly before Mother’s Day, so I decided to try to find a gluten-free gingerbread recipe to make for her since that is her favorite cake.
This is the one I found.
Gluten-free Gingerbread Cake
My husband actually ended up making it since he has made it his job to do the cooking on Sunday mornings in our house, and he likes baking particularly. :-) It turned out really well. It was rather heavy, but then gingerbread often is. We had bought Bob’s Red Mill brand “one-for-one” gluten free flour which is what he used.
The cake does have a distinct molasses flavor, so if you dislike molasses, this might not be for you. The nice thing is that it makes two cakes, so you can freeze one for later use if you like. :-) By the way, since I didn’t have two 9x9” pans, I think he ended up using two 7x11” pans.
