Einstein's Gingerbread

This magician, who transports himself in and out of the house at will, just loves this gingerbread recipe. He declares that a feline amore from the Dobu Island in the South pacific bestowed it upon him. It's a love potion of sorts and has this powerful sharing thing that happens when served.


2 Cups all-purpose flour
1 Cup whole-wheat flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
one and one-half teaspoons ground ginger
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
one-half teaspoon salt
one-quarter teaspoon ground cloves
1 cup packed brown sugar
one-third cup canola oil
3 large eggs
two-thirds cup molasses
1 Cup unsweetened applesauce
one-half cup buttermilk


1. Preheat oven to 350.

2. Combine flour and next 5 ingredients (through cloves) in a bowl, stirring well.

3. In a separate bowl, combine sugar, oil, and egg; beat with a mixer at medium speed until combined. Stir in molasses and applesauce.

4. Add flour mixture and buttermilk alternately to egg mixture, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Spoon batter into 2 loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350 for 35 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean.

5. Cool in pan for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
