Number of Servings: 12


    2 & 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    1 tsp ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp each: ground cloves, freshly ground black pepper
    1/2 cup each: molasses, sugar, unsweetened applesauce
    2 large eggs, at room temperature
    1 cup peanut or sunflower oil
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 cup boiling water
    1/2 cup peeled fresh ginger, minced* -55gr


In large bowl, sift together flour, cinnamon, cloves and pepper (if you like extra ginger action, add 1/2 to 1 tsp ground ginger at this point). In another large bowl, mix molasses, sugar, eggs and oil with electric mixer at medium-high speed until well blended, about 2 minutes. Add flour mixture; mix at low speed just until blended. In small cup, stir baking soda into water; quickly add to batter along with minced ginger. Mix just until blended.

Pour batter into buttered and floured 9-1/2-inch springform pan, smoothing top. Bake in preheated 350F oven until toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean, about 1 hour. If top browns too quickly during baking, loosely cover with foil.

Cool 30 minutes on wire rack. Run knife around edge, then remove sides of pan. Makes 10 to 12 servings. Decorate with powdered icing sugar or a tangy lemon icing
