You didn’t think I’d let December slip by without sharing one more gingerbread recipe, did you?
No. no. no. Because we owe it to the holiday season to celebrate with as much gingerbread as humanly possible. Gingerbread cookies, to gingerbread donuts, and now just to top it off, some gingerbread CAKE.
Because friends, did the holidays really even happen if there is no cake involved?

For this vegan gingerbread bundt cake, I ordered all the main baking goodies needed for this recipe. Flour, sugars, molasses, spices. So no going to 5 different grocery stores in the middle of winter to hunt for natural and organic products in stock. (Seriously guys, anyone else
A few notes on the recipe:
You can use a stand mixer, or just mix the cake in a bowl by hand. Both work well, but I prefer to use a stand mixer. (laziness wins!)
I’ve tested out this recipe using both solid and melted coconut oil, and both turn out well! For the recipe itself though, I prefer using solid coconut oil to cream together with the sugar. When you add in the rest of the wet ingredients, you may see some little speckles of the coconut oil throughout the mixture. Don’t worry! Everything will incorporate when you mix in the dry ingredients.
Now, moving onto the question on everyone’s mind: how to remove a bundt cake from the pan?
I’ve got you covered! Here is how to ensure you’re bundt cake comes out of the pan without
- Grease the pan using vegetable shortening right before your ready to bake
- Dust the pan with cocoa powder (or flour)
- After baking, let the bundt cake cool for exactly 10 minutes
Also remember, the more intricate the design in your bundt pan, the more chance there is for your bundt cake to stick to the pan. So I’d recommend using a pan with a simple design.
