EASY LOW-FAT APPLE-SPICE SNACK CAKE

This cake goes together in 10 minutes but it has to bake 45 minutes.

1 1/4 cups unsweetened chunky applesauce
1 cup light (mild) molasses
1/4 cup canola oil
1 large egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole-wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/3 tsp salt

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
Grease and flour a 9 x 9-inch baking pan; set aside.

In a large bowl, using a large spoon, mix applesauce, molasses, oil, and egg until blended.  Stir in the flours, baking soda, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and salt until batter is evenly mixed.

Pour the batter into the prepared baking pan and bake at 325 degrees for 45 minutes or until the center of the cake springs back when lightly touched with a couple of fingers. 

Allow cake to cool in the pan on a wire rack.

Yield: 12 servings
