Number of Servings: 8


    1/2 cup molasses
    1 cup applesauce
    1 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp cloves
    1 tsp baking powder
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1-3/4 cup flour (whole wheat pastry flour is good)
    2 tsp 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 8 x 8-inch baking pan or one sprayed with a non-stick spray, in a 350° F (175°C) oven, for 30 to 45 minutes, or until it tests done.
The optional ginger makes an acceptable gingerbread. You can also leave out the ginger and add 3 or 4 tablespoons of cocoa to make a tasty but not very sweet or rich chocolate cake.

    Very Good
    Surprisingly moist for being almost fat-free. Very nice flavor. I made the optional gingerbread version. Served with a dollop of fat-free vanilla yogurt. - 12/14/08
