Recipe Ingredients for Spicy Gingerbread

2 tbsp canola oil
3 tbsp ginger, grated
1/2 cup applesauce, unsweetened
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup molasses
3/4 cup nonfat plain yogurt
1 egg
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp dry mustard
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Recipe Directions for Spicy Gingerbread

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease an 8-inch square pan (or its equivalent).

  2. Heat the oil in a small pan. Add the ginger and sauté together over medium heat for about 3 minutes, or until fragrant. Remove from heat.

  3. Combine honey and molasses in a small mixing bowl, and beat at high speed with an electric mixer for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the ginger mixture, and beat for a minute more. Whisk in the yogurt and egg, then beat at high speed for an additional minute. Set aside.

  4. Sift dry ingredients together into a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the center, and pour in the wet mixture. Mix with a few decisive strokes until thoroughly combined.

  5. Spread into the prepared pan. Bake 30-35 minutes, or until the top surface is springy to the touch. Cool at least 15 minutes before slicing.
