Ingredients:

For the Gingerbread Cake:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup hot water

For the Spiced Cream Cheese Frosting:

  • 8 oz cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • Pinch of cloves
  • Pinch of salt

Instructions:

Warm the oven up to 175°F (350°F). A 9×9-inch square baking pan should be greased and floured, or parchment paper should be used to cover it.

Use a whisk to mix the flour, baking soda, salt, ground ginger, ground cinnamon, ground cloves, ground nutmeg, and ground cinnamon. Put away.

Put the melted butter and granulated sugar in a big bowl and mix them together until they are light and fluffy.

Mix the eggs, sugar, and vanilla extract into the butter that has been mixed. Mix everything together by beating it.

Slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet ones, mixing them in with the hot water every so often. Start with the dry ingredients and end with the hot water. Mix until everything is just mixed. Be careful not to mix too much.

Spread out the batter in the baking pan that has been made.

After the oven is hot, bake it for 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick stuck in the middle comes out clean.

Let the cake cool all the way down on a wire rack inside the pan.

Make the spicy cream cheese filling while the cake cools. Cream cheese and butter should be melted. Put them in a big bowl and mix them together until they are smooth and creamy.

Add the vanilla extract, ground cinnamon, ground ginger, ground nutmeg, ground cloves, and salt slowly while beating the mixture until it is smooth and fluffy.

Spread the spicy cream cheese frosting all over the top of the cake after it has cooled down fully.

Cut the cake into pieces and serve. Have fun with your tasty gingerbread cake and cream cheese filling with spices!

You can change the spices in the filling to make it taste the way you like it. For a holiday touch, you can also add more spices or gingerbread cookie pieces to the cake.

FAQs:

Q1: Can I make this gingerbread cake ahead of time? A1: Yes, you can! This gingerbread cake actually tastes better when made a day in advance as it allows the flavors to meld together. Simply store it in an airtight container at room temperature.

Q2: Can I freeze the spiced cream cheese frosting? A2: While the cake itself freezes well, cream cheese frosting doesn’t freeze as successfully due to its texture. It’s best to prepare the frosting fresh when serving the cake for optimal taste and texture.
