Vegan Gingerbread Bundt Cake

November 20, 2019
I am never the host during the holidays so I usually prepare a seasonal dessert and bring it to the host as a gift. One of my favorite winter flavors to work with is gingerbread because of the warming, aromatic spices it contains. I like gingerbread cookies but they tend to get time consuming so I prefer to make cake. I also like the festive feel the wreath shape of a bundt pan gives off so I used one to bake my batter in. This made my kitchen smell wonderful while it was in the oven. If you don’t have a bundt pan but you want to make this recipe you can simply prepare the batter and then pour it into a muffin tin, 2 9 inch cake pans, or 2 loaf pans. I chose to keep it simple and topped this cake with a little confectioners sugar but you could make a frosting or a glaze if you would like. It’s important to use dark molasses in this recipe because it has a deep, robust flavor that helps bring out the spices rather than light molasses that is more sweet.
