All the taste with none of the guilt!

1 3/4 cups Gluten Free Rice Flour Blend
1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup dark brown sugar (packed)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground ginger
8 tablespoons unsalted butter (melted)
1/2 cup molasses
1/4 cup water
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup buttermilk
confectioners’ sugar (for dusting)

Preheat oven to 350ºF. Grease and lightly flour a 9 x 5-inch loaf pan.
In a large bowl, add the flour, sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and ginger, and whisk to combine.
In a small bowl, add the butter and molasses and mix to combine. Pour the butter mixture into the flour mixture and stir to combine. Add the water and stir until incorporated. Add the egg, vanilla, and buttermilk and stir until combined.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan and place in the oven to bake for 40-45 minutes, until golden brown and it begins to pull away from the edge of the pan. Dust with confectioners’ sugar to serve and slice.
Tip: Wrap the bread in plastic wrap and store at room temperature for up to 5 days.

    I love The Chew. I live in California & wish I could come to see your show sometime. Your food always looks so yummy. I love to cook. It doesn’t like me so much any more. I’m 76 and have a lot of old age aches & pains. Sometimes I have to go sit down in middle of trying to fix a meal but still cook at lest 3 dinners a week for myself and I always fix enough for my daughter & her family. I’m a widow and it’s no fun cooking for one, so I make a lot when I do cook. They love my cooking, but I think it’s because it gives them a night off from. They’d say it was good even if it wasn’t. LOL Keep up the good work. Carla, Dancing With the Stars is missing the boat not having you on their show!!! Love yall.

    Dear Carla,

    What is the nutritional information on your gluten-free gingerbread cake? I always ask because my sugar levels can get high. Thank you so much!!

    Can this be made with GF all purpose flour instead of the rice flour? I don’t usually like the grainy texture of rice flour.
