    1 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    1 teaspoon ground ginger
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    1/4 teaspoon baking soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1 large egg
    6 tablespoons unsulfured molasses
    1 3/4 cups packed pitted dates (about 10 ounces)
    1/2 stick unsalted butter, softened
    1/2 cup applesauce
    6 tablespoons packed dark brown sugar


Preheat oven to 400F. and butter twelve 1/3-cup muffin cups.
Into a bowl sift together flour, ginger, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. In a small bowl whisk
together egg and molasses until combined. Coarsely chop dates. In a large bowl with an electric mixer
beat together butter, applesauce, and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in flour and egg mixtures until just combined
and stir in dates. Divide batter among muffin cups and bake in middle of oven until a tester comes out
