Gingerbread Cake


It's best to use a kitchen scale whenever possible. If you don't yet own a scale, these recipes are based upon 'lightly packed' measuring cups, so whether you use the 'dip and sweep' method of measuring or the 'spooning into the cup' method, always gently press down on the mix in the measuring cup and add more to fill the cup, as necessary. 1 C Mix weighs approx. 125g.


1. To bring eggs to room temperature quickly, set them in a glass of very warm water.

2. Melted butter should be warm not hot when adding to a recipe.

3. Most recipes work with either salted or unsalted butter.

4. Metal pans brown and crisp more than glass pans.

5. Glass pans take longer to come to temperature.

6. Ovens vary, so bake times may need to be adjusted.

7. Use room temperature ingredients for this recipe.

8. I like to sift the Bakery Mix for cakes.

SWEETENERS VARY tremendously and will affect the outcome of all baked goods, especially cookies.

We suggest using our new sweetener blend, S'WEEET!, real sugar, or a substitute such as Lakanto's Baking Blend, or Mrs. Jones blend (which contains sugar). If you prefer to bake with a liquid sweetener, you will likely need to add a 1-2 T more Bakery Mix. Allulose and kabocha-based sweeteners (Bocha Sweet) will make baked goods very soft and not crispy. Erythritol can make them firm and more crumbly.
