Number of Servings: 24


    1 1/4 cups whole wheat flour
    1 cup all purpose white flour
    1 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup Smart Balance Buttery spread, softened
    2/3 cup molasses (not blackstrap)
    2/3 cup packed light brown sugar
    2 large eggs
    3 tablespoons finely grated (with a rasp) peeled fresh ginger
    2/3 cup hot water


Put oven rack in middle position and preheat oven to 350F. Butter a 9-inch square baking pan.

Whisk together flour, baking soda, spices, and salt in a bowl.

Beat together butter, molasses, brown sugar, eggs, and ginger in a large bowl with an electric mixer at medium speed until combined. Reduce speed to low and mix in flour mixture until smooth, then add hot water and mix until combined (batter may appear curdled).

Pour batter into pan and bake until a wooden pick or skewer inserted in center of cake comes out clean, 35 to 40 minutes. Cool to warm in pan on a rack.

Cut like bread slices - to get 24 pieces, slice the bread across middle and then slice into 12 thin slices.
