Introduction

I love the flavors in this spicy bread. I've added some protein and flax for nutrition and cut the butter with applesauce, it still turns out delicious and uber healthy!

Ingredients

    1 cup unsulfered blackstrap molasses (or 1/2 cup molasses and 1/3 cup honey)

    3 Tbsp butter (orgainic if possible)
    3 Tbsp applesauce
    1/2 teaspoon salt

Directions

This recipe is ancient. Folks used to make it before sugar was as widely available as it is today. First melt the butter and applesauce. Combine it in a big bowl with the molasses, hot tap water and salt. Blend well. Add the ginger, baking soda, protein powder, flax meal and flour. Stir again. Try to make the batter smooth. Turn the mixture into a well oiled 9-inch round cake pan. Bake at 350 for about 20-30 minutes. A fork or tooth pick inserted into the center of it will come out clean, and the edges will pull away from the sides of the pan. Cool for a few minutes on the counter before cutting into 12 wedges. Wrap any leftovers in tin foil and store in the fridge.
