Cooking time



Gluten-free and vegan gingerbread sheet cake is not only delicious but also quick and easy to prepare. You can even use extra Christmas chocolates for decoration.



  • Preheat the oven to 180°C and line a baking tray (approx. 24 x 30 cm) with baking paper. If using a large baking tray, place the dough only halfway up the tray.
  • Mix together milled flaxseeds and water to form a vegan "egg". Set aside to rise.
  • In another bowl, mix the dry ingredients: flour, spices, baking soda and salt.
  • In a saucepan, heat the margarine and oatmeal over low heat. Do not allow the mixture to boil. Stir in the farina sugar and syrup and remove the mixture from the plate. Allow the liquids to cool for a few minutes.
  • First mix the flaxseed "egg" into the liquids with a whisk and then mix the dry ingredients with a ladle. Spread the dough on a baking tray / baking sheet on a baking paper.
  • Bake the cake in the oven for about 15-20 minutes. Check the cake after 15 minutes, and do a stick test in the middle of the cake. If there is still a lot of dough sticking to the cake, leave for a minute or so at a time, up to a maximum of ~20 min. The cake will set as it cools.
  • Allow the cake to cool properly before frosting.
  • Whip the oat butter into a fluffy froth. Add the cream cheese and icing sugar and continue to whip. Set aside about 2 dl of the white icing and colour it green with a small amount of colouring (or according to the colouring instructions). Add about 1-2 teaspoons of lemon juice and whisk the mixture until stiff.
  • Spread the white icing on top of the cooled sheet cake. Cut the cake into pieces and sprinkle the green "firs" over the cake. Decorate the pieces with sprinkles, berries, chocolates or whatever you want to decorate your piece with.
  • The cake will keep well covered in the fridge for about 4 days.
