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.

How to Make It

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350°.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

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!
