Ingredients 4 Portions
Preheat the oven to 170°C (338°F) using the convection oven setting. Line the springform tins with brown paper. Melt the butter. Add the flour, cacao, baking powder, sugar, cinnamon and Honey Gingerbread seasoning mix to a bowl.
Gradually stir in the melted butter, eggs, honey and buttermilk until an even dough forms. Distribute the mixture over three springform tins. Bake the mixture in a preheated oven for 20–25 minutes at 170°C (338°F) using the convection oven setting. Loosen from the tins while still warm and turn out. Then leave to cool.
To make the cream: Beat the whipping cream and add the spices. Coat one cake base with 1/3 of the cream. Layer the cake bases and cream alternately then top with the cream. Use a spatula to remove the cream from the side to create the typical naked cake look.
Decorate the cake with candy canes, fresh cranberries, fir branches and Christmas decorations and enjoy.
