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
