How to Make our Christmas Gingerbread Cake Recipe 

  1. Preheat oven to 180C.

  2. Mix the Keto Hana Cake Mix, keto soft brown sugar, and gingerbread spice in a bowl.

  3. Mix the eggs and melted butter with an electric whisk for 3 minutes while slowly adding the almond milk.

  4. Pour into two greased round springform cake tins and bake for 25-30 minutes.

  5. Let the cake cool down before taking it out of the tin. Repeat steps 1-5 to make two more cakes.

  6. In a bowl, whisk the butter with an electric whisk until it's pale and nearly doubled in size. Pour the remaining vanilla frosting ingredients and whisk for 5-10 minutes until light and fluffy.

  7. Spread the frosting between each layer and all over the outside of the cake.

  8. Dollop the remaining buttercream over the top of the cake and use a narrow spatula to create wave-type motions over the top of the cake.

  9. Decorate with keto gingerbread biscuits and sprinkle Keto Hana Gingerbread granola around the outside of the cake.
