recipe image Gingerbread Christmas Cake
FOR THE GINGERBREAD CAKE:
  • 1 ½ cup molasses
  • 1 ½ cup maple syrup
  • 2 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 cup orange marmalade
  • 1 cup coconut oil, melted
  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • ¾ tsp ground cloves
  • 2 cups hot water
FOR THE FROSTING:
  • 2 packs Violife Just Like Cream Cheese Original
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Decorations options: rosemary, cranberries, cinnamon sticks, gingerbread biscuits
  1. Preheat the oven to 374 °F.
  2. For the cake batter, use a blender to combine the molasses, maple syrup, marmalade and coconut oil. Blend until smooth.
  3. Sift together the flour, cacao, baking soda, salt and spices in a large mixing bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add hot water and stir.
  4. Line two round 8 inches cake tins and pour in batter, using a spatula to even out. Bake for 30 minutes.
  5. To make the frosting, beat the Violife Just Like Cream Cheese Original in a mixer, slowly adding the sugar, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
  6. When the cake is cool, use a spatula to frost the cake smoothly, placing one sponge on top of the other. Place in the fridge to set. Decorate with cranberries, gingerbread biscuits, cinnamon sticks and rosemary.
