Nothing beats the warm, comforting flavours of ginger and molasses during the holidays, so today I bring you my deliciously moist and fluffy Gingerbread Bundt Cake!

 

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!
