Applesauce Snacking Cake Recipe

8 servings, ready in 55 minutes

Preheat oven to 350°F (180°C). Spray an 8 x 8 inch (20 x 20 cm) metal cake pan with vegetable cooking spray.

In a small bowl, stir flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and ginger together. Set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, beat margarine and molasses with an electric mixer on high speed for approximately 1 minute.

Add egg substitute and vanilla and beat on high speed for 30 seconds. Mixture will be very liquid.

Add SPLENDA® Granulated and beat on medium speed until very smooth, approximately 1 1/2 minutes.
