Gingerbread Cobbler — The Skinny Fork by Gordon Ramsay

Gingerbread Cobbler — The Skinny Fork



Sometimes you just have to shake dessert up. This holiday season would be the great time to start a new tradition. Instead of the usual pies and cookies, why not try out this Gingerbread Cobbler! This Gingerbread Cobbler is very similar to my Whole Wheat Pumpkin Cobbler, but more in line with Christmas or New Years than Thanksgiving!

Cobbler just seems like the perfect winter dessert. It’s warm, gooey, and filling too. My mom seems to think that this cobbler is like those old fashioned pudding cakes where you layer the batter on the bottom of the pan and pour hot liquid on top to bake. While baking, the cake bubbles up to the top and the gooey pudding cobbler goodness is on the bottom.

-Honey: You can use pasteurized, raw, or even agave depending on preferences. Each honey will alter the flavor and color slightly.

-Butter: We need 1 stick (½ cup) of unsalted butter to add needed fats and richness to this cake.

-Sugar: With ½ cup of white granulated sugar we can get a much needed sweetness for this cake, without being too sweet.

-Flour: We will need to use 3 cups of all-purpose flour to make the base of this cake batter.

Spices: Using 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, ground ginger, and ground nutmeg we can create a flavorful spiced cake that tastes nutty and delicious.

-Baking powder: This is our leavening agent which will work to make the cake nice and fluffy. We need 2 leveled teaspoons of baking powder for the perfect cake.

-Cranberries: With ½ cup of dried cranberries (or other dried fruits) we can add a little color, flavor, and chewiness to every slice.

-Walnuts: ½ cup of roughly chopped walnuts is perfect for adding a buttery texture and nice flavor to the batter, but you can substitute with almonds, pecans, pistachios, or even hazelnuts!

-Eggs: Using 2 medium sized eggs we can create the binder this cake needs to hold together. Eggs also help cakes to keep a great texture too!

-Cocoa Powder: Adds to the flavor (as well as brown color) with just 2 teaspoons of unsweetened cocoa.

Preheat your oven to 350F degrees or 300F if it’s a convection oven.

Grease a 9x9inch pan with oil or butter and then set it aside.

In a bowl, melt the butter and then stir in the honey until combined.

Whisk the eggs and sugar together in another bowl until fluffy and bright.

Add the honey mixture to the egg mixture.

In another bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients (except for the cranberries and walnuts).

Pour the flour mixture into the bowl of wet ingredients and add in the cranberries and walnuts. Gently fold them all together until combined. Do not over mix.

Bake for about 25 minutes or until it’s golden brown and cooked thoroughly. A toothpick should be able to be inserted into the center and come out clean. Enjoy!

how to make a Honey Gingerbread cake recipe

Can I make this cake ahead?

Yes! The best part is that it gets even better if it had a chance to sit and let all the spices properly infuse. So it really tastes better from the second day on. How many times can you say that about leftovers?

Can I make more?

Yes, that’s no problem. Just double the amounts and use a bigger pan (9×13) or two pans (8×8). If you use a bigger pan you might need to adjust the baking time accordingly.

Can I freeze the gingerbread cake? 

Yes, this gingerbread cake is freezable. I recommend that you pack it tightly into freezer bags (if you want to do single servings) and then freeze for up to 4 months. This makes it great for a grab-and-go treat!
