More gingerbread goodness

Unfortunately, we ate this whole cake and failed to take a photo. But it was really tasty and easy to make so I am posting the recipe anyway. I got the recipe from and then substituted applesauce for the oil. We served it with Cool Whip and it was quite delicious.

Gingerbread Cake
1 cup applesauce (or oil)
1 cup sugar
1 cup molasses
3 eggs beaten
1 tsp ginger
1 tsp cinnomon
3 cups flour
1/3 tsp salt

Mix all ingredients in large bowl. Place 3 teaspoons of baking soda in 1 1/2 cups boiling water. Immediately add to batter. Mix well. Pour into 9x13 inch pan (I used some olive oil spray on the pan). Bake in preheated oven for 40 minutes at 325 degrees. Serve with vanilla ice cream or Cool Whip (do not use icing).
