I wish you could smell my kitchen right now. Two words: apple. gingerbread. AMAZING. Don't be fooled that this recipe is from a baby food cookbook - it may be a little healthy but its DE-lish.
Apple Gingerbread from Better Baby Food
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup granulated sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 cup butter or margarine, softened
1/2 cup light (fancy) molasses
1/3 cup milk
1 3/4 cups grated peeled apple (about 2 medium)
1. In a bowl, combine whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and spices.
2. In a large bowl, cream butter until light and fluffy. Stir in eggs and molasses. Stir in dry ingredients alternately with milk. Fold in apples. Spread into a greased loaf 13 by 9 inch baking pan.
3. Bake in 350 oven for 35 minutes (note: usually takes 45 or 50 for me). Cool on wire rack before cutting.
