  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add muffin liners to 20 muffin cups.

  3. In a small bowl, combine baking soda with boiling water, stir briefly, then set aside. In a large bowl, combine flours, ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, salt and baking powder with whisk.

  4. Fit your electric mixer with the paddle attachment. Then, in a large mixing bowl, combine canola oil, light cream cheese or sour cream, and brown sugar together by beating on medium speed. While beating on low speed, add molasses, the baking soda mixture and the flour mixture. Now beat in the egg and egg substitute.
