What You Need:

3 cups whole wheat pastry flour
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
2-1/2 cups applesauce
3/4 cup apple juice
1/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons safflower oil, plus additional for pan
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon almond extract
Maple Apple Topping, for serving

What You Do:

2. Lightly grease a non-stick 9x13-inch pan with a little safflower oil. Pour batter into greased pan, and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Allow to cool before cutting into 12 pieces. Serve with Maple Apple Topping and vegan whipped cream.
