I was hungry for gingerbread and didn't have any molasses. I decided to see if I could adapt a recipe and come up with something that still tasted like gingerbread without the molasses. This turned out really good. A purist may miss the molasses, but we didn't! This was dark and fragrant with spices and sweetened perfectly with honey and natural brown sugar! This cake is super moist due to the yogurt in the batter. I've replaced the ap flour with whole grain flours, so, it's pretty healthy, too, as far as treats go!
