7. Warm Gingerbread Cake

I am still reminded that it is the holidays with the Christmas lights and holiday baking.  And gingerbread.  Love gingerbread!  But this cake was THE BEST GINGERBREAD CAKE I have had in my life!  In fact, it was probably one of the best cakes I have ever had!  You guys will not even believe how amazing it is.  It baked perfectly and was so moist.  But the caramel sauce.  The caramel sauce on top was mind blowing.  It went together so well on top of this warm cake.  And then with a dollop of fresh whipped cream.  Wow!  I can’t get over how incredible it was.   If you know what is good for you run to the store and get the ingredients to make this.  Your family will go nuts over this amazing cake.  It is perfect for the holidays and so amazing, I might just make it year round!

8. Gingerbread Fudge

It appears this week is unofficially gingerbread week at Sweetest Menu. We’ve already eaten more then our fair share of Chocolate Chunk Molasses Cookies and now I have another sweet gingerbread treat for you. Smooth and creamy Spiced Gingerbread Fudge that is bursting with holiday flavours.

9. Gingerbread Cupcakes

Let me introduce you to gingerbread cupcakes.  This cupcake recipe not only looks like it would make you want to suck the icing right out of the piping bag, but its one of the moistest spiced cake recipes I’ve made to date.  Full of gingerbread flavor dressed with a basic cream cheese frosting.. it’s the thing that adult gingerbread dreams are made of.

10. Gingerbread Cookie Dough Bites

These no-bake gingerbread cookie dough bites are the perfect healthy Christmas dessert or snack. Easy and quick to make, they take only 15 minutes to prepare. And while they may be gluten, dairy, egg and refined sugar free, as well as vegan and paleo – they are also super rich, buttery, sweet, aromatic and utterly decadent! (Plus, they make the most amazing edible Christmas gift!)

11. Gingerbread Soufflé with Butterscotch Sauce

Let’s talk Gingerbread Soufflé and how incredibly delightful it is with a pouring of warm Butterscotch Sauce.  A soft fluffy cake made with molasses and pumpkin spice, served with a dusting of powdered sugar and a drizzle of creamy butterscotch. If you haven’t tried your hand at baking a soufflé, I suggest you grab a few ramekins or mugs and try this recipe. Your gingerbread loving tastebuds will thank you!

12. Gingerbread Fig Bars

Flour covering every surface like kitchen snowfall. Metal outlines of snowflakes and bells and holly. Rolling pins and baking sheets haphazardly strewn. Stealing the scraggly bits of the cookie dough to nibble. Smell of sugar wafting. Oven warmth emanating. Timer beeping. Not an un-sticky surface in sight. That’s the stuff that Christmas cookies are made of. Yes, yes flour and sugar too, but the chaotic kitchen behind the sweet treats is the real magic.

13. Gingerbread Muffins

I love this recipe for Gingerbread Muffins because they aren’t overly sweet and the flavour of gingerbread really comes through with each bite. They are a great addition to your morning coffee especially during the festive holiday season!

14. Gingerbread Cookie Bars

Gingerbread Cookie Bars with Cream Cheese Frosting are ultra thick, soft, and chewy with tons of aromatic spices and a generous layer of tangy frosting!

15. Gingerbread Cheesecake

A creamy gingerbread cheesecake, perfect for the holiday season. Serve with whipped cream and mini gingerbread cookies for an extra treat.

16. Cider-Gingerbread Bundt Cake

The bold, rich flavors of boiled cider and gingerbread are perfectly matched in this ultra-moist cake, which brings these traditional fall and holiday flavors together. This recipe fits a smaller-sized, 5- to 6-cup Bundt pan, but can be easily doubled to fit a 10- to 12-cup pan. Small or large, though, this cake is always big on flavor.

17. Gingerbread Waffle

These Gingerbread Waffles are the perfect breakfast for the holiday season. They’re a little bit spicy, a little bit sweet, and completely delicious.

18. Toasted Almond Gingerbread Scones

We’re having Gingerbread Scones with Christmas breakfast. Gingerbread is a popular flavor this time of year and it makes a tasty scone. These are extra special with frosting and almonds throughout and on top.

19. Gingerbread Hot Chocolate

Rich and creamy Gingerbread Hot Chocolate spiked with all the very best gingerbread spices. The perfect festive drink!

20. Slow Cooker Gingerbread Pudding

Have you started planning for Christmas? The food I mean rather than the presents. If you want to have a change from a Christmas pudding, or are catering for a crowd and want an alternative to add to your menu, how about a slow cooker gingerbread pudding? Inspired by the flavours of sticky gingerbread cake, but served as a steamed pudding, this dessert is bound to please a crowd.
