Applesauce Spice Cake

1/2 cup molasses 
1 cup applesauce 
1 tsp. cinnamon 
1/2 tsp. cloves 
1 tsp. baking powder 
1/2 tsp. baking soda 
1 3/4 cup flour (I use whole wheat pastry flour) 
2 tsp. ginger (optional) 

Combine the molasses and applesauce in a large bowl. Combine remaining
ingredients and stir into the liquid. (If the batter seems very dry,
add a little more applesauce or a little water.) Bake in a nonstick or
pan-sprayed 8*8-inch baking pan, in a 350 degree oven, for 30-45
minutes or until it tests done.

The optional ginger makes an acceptable gingerbread. I have also had
success leaving out the ginger and adding 3 or 4 tablespoons of cocoa
(I guess you could use carob) to make a tasty but not very sweet or
rich chocolate cake. If you use cocoa you might need to add extra
sweetening, but that depends on your taste.
