Gingerbread Spice Cake

Category: Desserts - Cakes

Suitable for a: vegan diet



1/2 cup raisins

1/2 cup chopped pitted dates

1 3/4 cup water

3/4 cup sweetener (I use either corn syrup, agave nectar OR maple syrup combined with molasses - I just don't like straight molasses, many people do)

1/2 tsp salt

2 tsp ground cinnamon

1 Tb. finely shredded fresh ginger OR 1 tsp. powdered

1 tsp ground nutmeg

1/4 tsp ground cloves

2 cups whole wheat pastry flour or part white-part wheat

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp baking powder



Preheat oven to 350 degrees

Mix dry ingredients in large mixing bowl.

Combine dried fruit, water, sweetener in a large heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Boil for 2 minutes, then remove from heat and let cool.

When fruit mixture is cool mix it into premixed dry ingredients

Very quickly spread into a nonstick (or very lightly greased) 9 X 9 square pan and bake 30 minutes or until toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

If you make a cream cheese icing to go with, this is a wonderful holiday treat!! YUM! I make it for my kids when they want to snack after school.
