How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt pan.

Step 2

In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves and salt. In a separate bowl, mix applesauce with baking soda. In a third, large bowl, whisk eggs, egg white, molasses, brown sugar and oil until smooth. Add to dry ingredients and gently stir to form a smooth batter. Fold in applesauce mixture.

Step 3

Pour batter into Bundt pan. Bake in center of oven until a toothpick inserted in middle of gingerbread comes out clean, 45 minutes. Cool 5 minutes in pan on wire rack, then unmold to cool completely. Dust with confectioners' sugar and serve.

Very moist and spicy, just the way we like it! I used 3 whole eggs instead of the 2 plus one eggwhite because that's the way we roll around here and it turned out fine. Our son went back for 3rds! Definately adding this to my recipe box to make again and again.

Great cake!! Have made it several times and it comes out perfect every time, moist and flavorful. Only thing I did different was cut the bake time by 5 minutes.
