DIRECTIONS

  • Because lowfat recipes are very sensitive, follow all the measuring and mixing instructions exactly, or you may get a heavy, dry result.
  • Measure flour by spooning it gently into the measuring cup, then leveling off.
  • Place oven rack at center position and preheat oven to 350°.
  • Spray 8 x 8" square nonstick baking pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Combine flours, spices, baking soda, and salt in a mixing bowl and stir lightly with a fork.
  • In another bowl, combine water, molasses, brown sugar, applesauce, egg and oil and beat with a mixer on high speed until mixture is frothy (about 2 minutes).
  • Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients.
  • Pour the wet into the dry and stir gently, just enough to moisten thoroughly.
  • Pour batter into prepared pan, level gently, and place in oven.
  • Bake 50 minutes or until the top springs back when touched gently and edges pull away from the sides of the pan.
  • Be careful not to overbake.
  • Serve warm or cold, plain, sprinkled with confectioner's sugar, or with the dessert sauce of your choice.
  • I like it best warm with some slightly runny fruit preserves on top.
