Gluten Free Bundt Cakes
If you haven’t made a bundt cake in a while, it is time to dust off that fun shaped pan for this recipe. I have made several delicious bundt cakes with my pan like:
- Gluten Free Pumpkin Bundt Cake
- Gluten Free Lemon Bundt Cake with Lemonade Icing

We love dessert and since Mr. Fearless Dining asked so nicely, I decided to make a gingerbread bundt cake for him. There is something about ginger and spices that he really loves. I hope you enjoy this holiday bundt cake recipe as much as he does!!
To make this gingerbread cake, you will need some basic ingredients.
Here is the shopping list to make this Gluten Free Gingerbread Bundt Cake:
- Gluten Free Flour Blend (I used King Arthur’s Gluten Free Blend for this recipe, but Bob’s Red Mill 1 to 1 Gluten Free Blend, Pamela’s Baking Mix, and Authentic Foods MultiBlend all work wonderfully too!)
- Almond milk
- Brown sugar
- Spices: cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, ginger, salt
- Molasses (I like using Blackstrap)
- Baking powder and soda
This bundt cake is great as is, or you can make some easy substitutions to make it more allergy friendly.
Modifications for Additional Food Allergies:
To make this gingerbread bundt cake dairy free, substitute coconut oil for the butter, and use a dairy-free cream cheese like Kite Hill for the frosting.
To make this cake refined sugar-free, substitute coconut sugar for the brown sugar.
This cake is naturally nut-free unless you use Pamela’s Baking Mix. That brand includes almond flour in their gluten free flour blend.
This gluten free bundt cake can be frozen if you want to make it ahead. I do recommend if you do freeze the cake, frost the cake when you defrost it!
Can this cake be made without a bundt pan?
Yes, you can do so much with this gluten free gingerbread bundt cake recipe! You can make a sheet cake, cupcakes, and even a cute layer cake with this gingerbread cake recipe.
Are you ready to make this gluten free gingerbread cake recipe for yourself? You are going to love it!!
The first step is to add your wet ingredients and spices to a mixer bowl. I haven’t used my mixer in a long time…but I really do love it for whipping up cake batter. Mix on low, then gradually increase the speed to medium.
Slowly add in the gluten free flour half a cup at a time until all of the flour is all blended in. You can see the cake batter consistency in this picture
Pour the gingerbread cake batter into a greased bundt pan. I used coconut oil to grease the pan. It is a bit icky…I use a paper towel and dip it into the jar of coconut oil. Spread it all around and be careful to get the oil into all of the creases of the pan. It works well to prevent sticking.
Bake for 30 minutes until done.
How do you know when the bundt cake is done?
Stick a toothpick into the middle of the cake. If the toothpick comes back with no batter or crumbs, the bundt cake is done.
