Old Homes and an Old Fashioned Ginger Bread with reduced calories

Updated: Oct 9, 2021

When reading books like The Farmhouse on Cemetery Hill Rd. and The Portal it is fun to reward yourself by eating a dessert typical of that era. Here is a recipe for Diet Ginger Bread which contains some fat but a greatly reduced amount of molasses while still tasting like Ginger Bread.

1/3 Cup Marg

1/3 Cup water

1/6 Cup Molasses

1/2 Cup Splenda

1/2 Cup applesauce

2 eggs

1 Cup flour

1/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. ginger

1/4 tsp. cinnamon

Grease and lightly flour 8" square pan. Set oven to 350.

Melt butter in the water in microwave. When it cools slightly add next 4 ingredients.

Separately sift together all remaining ingredients then mix with the liquids until smooth. Pour into pan and bake for 30 minutes. Great aroma and taste!
