Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350°F and grease a 13-by-9- inch baking pan. In a large bowl, combine Bisquick, 1 1/4 cups sugar and ginger. In a separate bowl, mix milk with molasses, and then beat in butter and eggs.

  • Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients and stir until blended and smooth. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean, about 25 minutes. Turn out onto a wire rack and let cool.

  • Beat cream with remaining 2 Tbsp. sugar until it forms stiff, fluffy peaks.

  • Cut cake into 8 equal pieces. Spoon a dollop of applesauce onto each of 4 dessert plates, if using. Arrange a gingerbread slice on each plate. Spread whipped cream on those 4 pieces and then top with other pieces. Dollop with more whipped cream.
