Classic Gingerbread Cake


1/2 cup coconut oil, melted, plus more for greasing pans

6 large eggs

1 tbsp vanilla extract

3/4  cup coconut flour

1/2 cup maple syrup

1/4 cup molasses

1 tablespoon ground ginger

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1 teaspoon ground cloves

1 teaspoon baking soda

1⁄2 teaspoon Himalayan pink salt

1 cup coconut  buttercream (for pipping)


Preheat the oven to 350°F. Line one 8 x 8-inch cake pan with parchment paper, then grease the sides of the pan (s) with coconut oil.

In a large bowl, whisk together the oil, molasses, maple syrup, eggs, and vanilla. In a medium bowl, whisk the coconut flour, cinnamon, ginger, cloves, baking soda, and salt. A little at a time, add the dry ingredients to the wet, stirring until a batter forms.
