{Allergy Free} Ginger Cake with Caramel Icing

My husband gave this a 6 on a scale from 1-5.  The kids gave it a 100, 37, and 18 on that same scale.  I'm not sure what that tells me - other than it was a huge hit.  The entire cake was gone in 20 minutes.  We had to take a family walk afterward!  
 Hello Fall!  Ginger and Caramel?  Yes!  The icing is absolutely awesome and the cake will melt in your mouth.  I ate way too many pieces!

1 1/4 cup flour blend
3/4 cup brown sugar
3/4 tsp xanthan gum
1  3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
3/4 cup Earth Balance Soy Free softened
3 tsp egg replacer whisked with 4 T rice milk
2/3 cup rice milk whisked with 1 tsp lemon juice

Grease a bundt pan.
Mix all ingredients together in mixer on low.
Once incorporated, mix on medium for 2 minutes until batter is smooth.
Pour into the bundt pan and smooth the top.
Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until top springs back when touched.
Turn out on a wire rack to cool.
Meanwhile, make the icing.

Caramel Icing
heaping 1/4 cup Earth Balance Soy Free
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
2 T vanilla hemp milk
3/4 cup powdered sugar

Stir the Earth Balance, brown sugar, and hemp milk together in small saucepan.
Stir over low heat until sugar is completely dissolved.
Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer for 2 minutes.
Remove from heat and whisk in powdered sugar until smooth.
Pour over cake.

Should there be some sugar in the cake batter? Ours did not come out very well. I have tried lots of your recipes and they have all been delicious.

Yes it should have brown sugar. I'm sorry! I know it's in the instructions but I added the amount in the ingredients section. That's what I get for putting the post together so late at night! It should work out much much better now!
