white gingerbread cake recipe

Our readers are such great cooks and give us some of the best recipes. Here is a white gingerbread cake recipe from Bea that sounded different and interesting. If you don’t like the molasses flavor in regular gingerbread, this recipe may be for you because it has no molasses. It is like a spice cake. 

I think it would be delicious for breakfast, dessert or snack and might be good drizzled with a little vanilla or caramel frosting.

White Gingerbread Cake Recipe


2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, cut up

Mix and reserve 1 cup.


1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. ginger
1/4 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. mace
1 egg
1/2 cup buttermilk

Mix all ingredients into the flour mixture. Put 1/2 cup of the reserved topping on bottom of a greased baking pan. Pour the batter on top. Sprinkle the other 1/2 cup topping over the top. Bake at 350 degrees for about 35 minutes or until a toothpick pushed in the center comes out clean.
