  1. Gingerbread Cake

  2. This cake is kinda like quick bread -- spongy and nice -- and comes under the "treat" category. It has sugar and buttermilk and egg whites in it, but I allow myself to have it occasionally.

  3. 1 cup all-purpose flour

  4. 1/2 cup whole wheat flour (don't substitute more white flour - the cake'll be gooey)

  5. 1/4 cup brown sugar

  6. 1 tsp. cinnamon

  7. 1 tsp. ground ginger

  8. 1/2 tsp. baking powder

  9. 1/2 tsp. baking soda

  10. 1/2 cup non-fat buttermilk

  11. 1/2 cup applesauce

  12. 1/2 cup molasses

  13. 2 egg whites

  14. Powdered sugar for dusting

  15. 350 degrees. Lightly coat

  16. 8x2x2 baking pan with nonstick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine flours, brown sugar, cinnamon, ginger, baking powder and baking soda. In a small bowl, combine buttermilk, applesauce, molasses and egg whites; add to flour mixture. Beat until combined. Pour into baking pan and bake

  17. 30 to 35 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes, cut cake into nine squares and dust with powdered sugar.
