  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x13-inch baking pan.
  2. Mix amaranth flour, buckwheat flour, coconut flour, baking soda, cinnamon, ground ginger, cloves, nutmeg, and salt together in a large bowl. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture.
  3. Stir flax meal and 6 tablespoons water together in a separate bowl. Add agave nectar, canola oil, molasses, grated fresh ginger, and lemon zest; stir to combine. Pour wet ingredients into the well in the flour mixture; mix well. Gradually stir boiling water into the batter until fully incorporated. Pour batter into prepared baking pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • If you're not vegan, you can use 2 eggs instead of the ground flax. This recipe is also good with fresh or frozen (thawed) cranberries. Also excellent with a cashew cream icing or with coconut cream frosting.
  • You can also choose to make 2 dozen muffins with the batter.
