Combine the Dry Ingredients

First, whisk together the flour, spices, baking powder, and salt.

Combine the Wet Ingredients

Next, in a separate bowl, beat the eggs with vanilla, sugar, and molasses. After a few minutes of whipping, add the oil.

Add the Dry Ingredients to the Wet

Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet, alternating with the sour cream. Continue to mix until the ingredients are just combined.

Prepare for Baking

Transfer the batter to a loaf tin lined with parchment paper.


Bake at 350ºF for 50 minutes to one hour, then leave the loaf to cool.


Smear a thick layer of frosting all over the loaf. Throw on some chopped pecans, and tada! Your freshly iced gluten-free gingerbread loaf is ready for slicing.
