Ginger Snap Cake
Ginger Snap Cake! It’s December! My Christmas tree is up and I’m ready for all the Holiday festivities! My husband’s grandma used to make Ginger Snap Cookies for the family Christmas parties and he just loved them and still brings back memories to this day.
I started thinking of ways to incorporate that flavor into a cake and that is when the Ginger Snap Cake was born!
This cake is so moist and full of flavor and then you add the cream cheese icing and your mouth will be doing the happy dance!
This would be perfect for any Holiday gathering!
Ginger Snap Cake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and make sure the oven rack is on the third level. Grease a 9-inch springform pan and place aluminum foil on the bottom of the pan to help make sure the batter doesn’t seep through.
In a bowl, combine flour, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside.
In a different bowl, using a mixer, cream the butter for about a minute. Add the brown sugar until combined. Make sure to scrape down the sides. Add the egg and the vanilla and combine.
Add the dry ingredients alternating with the hot water and molasses, beginning and ending with the dry ingredients. Make sure not to over mix. The batter will be thin.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake, if clean, it’s done! Let the cake cool in the pan and then remove it.
FROSTING: In a bowl, cream together the cream cheese and butter. Add the vanilla. Add the powdered sugar and mix until smooth. Not thick enough? add a little bit more powdered sugar, 1/2 cup at a time.

I don’t see the egg and vanilla in the instructions? Am I misreading something? I assume it goes in after you cream the butter/brown sugar.. I hope cause that’s what I’m going to do. Lol
no, it’s me! lol! I guess I was drunk that day. lol!!! It’s there now. Thanks for pointing it out to me!
Thank you for the recipe! We looved this cake, definitely saving the recipe. It has a very strong flavour, and does best paired with its frosting, or ice cream as we did! It was delicious.
I love hearing that! Thank you for taking the time to tell me!
