Vegan Gingerbread Cake

Hey guys! First of all, I'm so excited to have joined this community! I have been slowly transitioning to become vegan for a little over a year now. I took the leap this month and have cut out animal products for good!!! Yay

I don't know about you, but I am already super excited for the holidays, so I've been baking up a storm and trying new vegan recipes in the hopes that I will find amazing new treats that will make me not even miss the traditional ones I'm so used to. This weekend I came up with this vegan gingerbread cake and it is fantastic! Totally don't miss the non-veg version AT ALL! It's based on one from epicurious, I just made some swaps and added my own little flair to make it vegan (and yummier in my humble opinion)

For pictures and more detail, check out my blog, honeyandcardamom.com

Here you go

1 tbsp ground flax + 3 tbsp water
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp ground ginger
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup brown sugar (lightly packed)
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup boiling water
*Powdered sugar for topping (optional)
Directions

Mix the flax seeds with the water in a small bowl and set aside.
Preheat the oven to 350 and prepare an 8-inch square baking dish. Grease the dish with oil, and then line with a piece of parchment paper that hangs over two sides (so that you can lift the finished cake out of the dish later).
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, spices, salt, baking soda and baking powder.
In a separate, medium bowl, pour the boiling water over the coconut oil. Whisk until all the oil is melted. Whisk in the brown sugar, molasses, and flax egg.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet and whisk to combine. Pour the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the oven for 22-26 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the cake cool for 5-10 minutes before lifting it out and placing it on a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar before serving, and cut into squares. Enjoy!
