Can You Freeze Gingerbread Cake?

You can freeze your gingerbread cake while preserving its taste and texture if you use an air-tight freezer safe container.

 This is a quick and easy cake recipe that requires no mixer, because you’ll be using melted butter instead of creaming the butter and sugar together. This recipe calls for cake flour to create a beautifully light and fluffy cake, and Greek-style yoghurt to add incredible moisture.

How Long will Gingerbread Cake Keep?

Gingerbread Cake will keep 5-7 days in the pantry.

The spices used in this cake are ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg. All my favourite autumn flavours together in one cake. A nice, big slice would go perfectly with a hot cup of tea or coffee!

Leftovers can be stored, covered, in the fridge for up to 2 - 3 days. You can bake this cake 1 day in advance. Allow to cool completely, then cover tightly and keep in the fridge until ready to frost and serve. This cake also freezes well for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the fridge before serving.
