This is my kind of cake. The inside is naturally sweetened with honey and molasses, and spiced with my favorite warming spices. No mixer required!

Then I slathered the top with pillowy clouds of cream cheese frosting, because why not? It’s the holiday season. Let’s deck the halls. Bring on the cream cheese frosting. Sprinkle cinnamon on top.

I’ve received several requests for gingerbread cake over the years, and this one delivers. It’s more of a wholesome, hearty cake than a delicate bakery cake, but the frosting balances it all out.

I used my partner Frontier Co-op’s spices, which always smell and taste so fresh. Their Vietnamese cinnamon is sweet like snickerdoodles, rather than fiery like Red Hots.


Frontier Co-op gets their cinnamon from Northern Vietnam, where a community of farmers harvest cinnamon cut from the case of the tree to ensure a high concentration of oil (and flavor).

Combined with ground ginger, cloves and nutmeg, this cake is the perfect holiday treat. As always, please let me know how you like it in the comments!
