This recipe, created by private chef, Robin Goldstein, is a personal favorite! Every year we have a big Christmas party on the 23rd and this gingery dessert is quick to make and disappears even faster! For larger groups, use a large 9 x 13 pyrex pan, or make two round layers with the cream cheese frosting in between. Guaranteed to be very popular with your guests!

  1. In a large saucepan, heat the brewed Teeccino and molasses over medium heat until they combine. Remove from heat and stir in baking soda. The mixture will expand quite considerably so using a larger pan will allow for more room to grow! Let the mixture stand one hour to cool completely.
  2. Preheat oven to 350F. Butter and flour three 8 in cake pans.
  3. In a large bowl, sift flour with baking powder and ground spices.
  4. Whisk together eggs and both sugars together in a separate bowl.
  5. Add the vegetable oil and mix in just to combine.
  6. Mix in the Teeccino/molasses mixture and mix just to combine.
  7. Add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture and mix until incorporated, fold in the grated ginger.
  8. Cool completely. Layer cake with cream cheese filling and top with mocha glaze.
  9. Can be served as three separate cakes or made into a large rectangular cake with cream cheese frosting.

Mocha Glaze:
Slowly blend 2 cups of powdered sugar into the brewed Teeccino. If you want to spread the glaze like a frosting, add more powdered sugar until the desired consistency is reached.

Cream Cheese Frosting:

  1. Beat the cream cheese, butter, and orange zest with an electric mixer until fluffy.
  2. Slowly beat in the powdered sugar.
  3. Spread between layers of gingerbread cakes.
