Mix in the Pan Gingerbread

Mix in the Pan Gingerbread

Using vegetable oil instead of butter and eggs cuts down on saturated fat in this guaranteed family favorite Mix in the Pan Gingerbread. It takes only ten minutes to mix up! If you'd like to make the gingerbread ahead of time, wrap it in plastic and store at room temperature for up to two days.


1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup dark brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 cup apple cider or juice
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
1 tablespoon distilled white vinegar
1 tablespoon minced crystallized ginger (optional)
1 cup low-fat or nonfat vanilla yogurt
2 teaspoons grated lemon peel
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Sift the flour, brown sugar, baking soda and ground ginger into an 8 inch round cake pan. Make a well in the center and add the cider, oil, molasses, vinegar and crystallized ginger.

Mix the batter with a fork until the dry ingredients are moistened and the batter is smooth. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until a cake tester inserted in the center comes out clean. Let the gingerbread cool in the pan on a wire rack.

In a small bowl, mix together the yogurt, lemon peel and lemon juice. Spoon over the gingerbread just before serving.
