Maple Gingerbread Christmas Cake
December 12, 2019
Preheat the oven to 374 °F.
For the cake batter, use a blender to combine the molasses, maple syrup, marmalade and coconut oil. Blend until smooth.
Sift together the flour, cacao, baking soda, salt and spices in a large mixing bowl. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and mix until combined. Add hot water and stir.
Line two round 8 inches cake tins and pour in batter, using a spatula to even out. Bake for 30 minutes.
To make the frosting, beat the Violife Just Like Cream Cheese Original in a mixer, slowly adding the sugar, maple syrup and vanilla extract.
When the cake is cool, use a spatula to frost the cake smoothly, placing one sponge on top of the other. Place in the fridge to set. Decorate with cranberries, gingerbread biscuits, cinnamon sticks and rosemary.
