This Gingerbread is easy to make, as the name says, and is ready in under 30 minutes. After cooling, sprinkle with powdered sugar for a sweet finish to this holiday treat.
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
1/2 cup orange juice
1/3 cup molasses
1/4 cup egg substitute or 1 egg white
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon powdered sugar
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Beat granulated sugar and butter at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Add juice, molasses, and egg substitute; beat well, and set aside.
Lightly spoon flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour and the next 6 ingredients (flour through nutmeg) in a small bowl; gradually add flour mixture to molasses mixture, stirring until well-blended. Pour batter into an 8-inch square baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool gingerbread in pan on a wire rack. Sprinkle with powdered sugar.
This recipe rocks i made it for my grandmother, who lived in new Orleans for a time and bought something similar to this all the time. She asked me to find a recipe that recreated that kind of gingerbread and this did it she ate almost the whole cake by herself in less then a day.
The texture of this was beyond perfect. I am used to more dense gingerbread, but this was light and fluffy and absolutely delicious. It was ready at 4 pm and gone by 8:30! I used about twice the cinnamon and baked it for just a few minutes longer, and let it cool in the pan for about 15 minutes. . .I probably could have left it in there a bit longer. But everyone loved it!
