I love warm gingerbread for dessert, but we’re also trying to limit our desserts and when we do make them I try to lighten them up a bit. This recipe is as good as regular gingerbread. A perfect dessert to enjoy on a crisp autumn night.Applesauce Gingerbread

This looks great, thank you for sharing. So many years ago when I was in scouts we made a campfire version with applesauce and a mix, and I have never forgotten that delicious taste. This will work much better for me now, I don’t buy mixes and haven’t had this applesauce version in 45+ years, like I said so many years ago!

This is a great tasting recipes and I’m with you no mixes!
