Applesauce Spice Cake
The optional ginger in this applesauce spice cake recipe turns it into an acceptable gingerbread.
1/2 cup molasses
1 cup applesauce
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cup whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons ginger (optional)
Combine the molasses and applesauce in a large bowl.
Combine remaining ingredients and stir into the liquid. (If the batter seems very dry, add a little more applesauce or a little water.)
Bake in a nonstick or pan-sprayed 8x8 inch baking pan, in a 350 degree oven, for 30 to 45 minutes or until it tests done.
The optional ginger makes this recipe an acceptable gingerbread.
You can also leave out the ginger and add 3 or 4 tablespoons of cocoa (Or you could use carob) to make a tasty but not very sweet or rich chocolate cake. If you use cocoa you might need to add extra sweetening, depending on your taste.
