Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mix amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  3. Stir flax meal and 6 tablespoons water together in a separate bowl. Add agave nectar, canola oil, molasses, grated fresh ginger, and lemon zest; stir to combine. Pour wet ingredients into the well in the flour mixture; mix well. Gradually stir boiling water into the batter until fully incorporated. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

I don't typically review recipes that I've altered from the printed, but since this one has no reviews, I'll do it anyway :) This turned out really good for vegan, gf gingerbread. I changed the flour combo as I don't keep amaranth around. So I used a combo of sorgum, buckwheat, brown rice, potato starch and coconut flour. I subbed the agave syrup for honey straight across. Not sure why the baking soda was in such a high measurement and wonder if it would have been better to decrease this and add some baking powder, but it did rise a little (mostly around the outside edges). Very happy to have stumbled upon this recipe as I have wanted gingerbread for a couple years now :) I will definitely make it again, but probably keep the buckwheat measurements the same in my next batch. I am guessing it adds a bit to the overall product. It tastes best cooled completely in my opinion.
