Before you start

A hand-held or stand mixer will make things easier for this recipe.

Method

  1. Preheat the oven to 175°C/350°F. Spray a 9x9 inch baking dish with a vegetable oil spray.
  2. Prepare the Egg Replacer, then set aside.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the oil and syrup using a mixer for about 2 min until thoroughly blended. Add the Egg Replacer, about 1/3 cup at a time beating well after each addition. Add the vanilla then set aside.
  4. Sift together the dry ingredients (except the nuts) in a second bowl. Add some of the dry ingredients to the bowl with the wet ingredients, a little at a time, blending well. Alternate with the Unsweetened Applesauce, about 1/4 cup at a time, blending well after each addition. Fold in the nuts at the end of the process using a spatula.
  5. Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish and bake in the middle of the oven for about 35 min, or until the gingerbread is done. Check for doneness with a toothpick or knife to see if the gingerbread is cooked through.
  6. Pull the baking dish out of the oven and let stand at least 15 min before removing the gingerbread from the dish. After removing the gingerbread, let it cool on a wire rack at least an additional 30 min before serving.

I had the same problem with the egg replacer. Then I tried with HOT water on fresly grinded flexseeds and it worked.

This recipe was surprsingly easy and very tasty! At first I was concerned because my egg replacer (flax/water combo) didn't seem to "gel" even after 10-15 minutes, but it didn't seem to make a difference. Perhaps my bread just turned out a little more dense than others but I still thought it was great! I may use more ginger next time as this tastes a little bit like spice cake at first and then has a ginger aftertaste. I would prefer more of a gingery flavor.
