Ginger Pear Cake

A festive cake- great for the holidays, but doesn’t pack on the pounds!


1 ¼ cups whole wheat pastry flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 teaspoon powdered ginger
1 egg or ¼ cup egg substitute
½ cup packed brown sugar
¼ cup margarine, melted
¼ cup light maple syrup
½ cup 0% Greek yogurt
3 cups chopped pears


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix flour, cinnamon, ginger and baking soda in a small bowl. In a larger bowl, mix the brown sugar, maple syrup, egg, margarine, and Greek yogurt. Slowly start adding the flour mixture to the larger bowl with the egg/sugar mixture until a soft thick dough is formed. Stir in the chopped pears and add batter to a 9 X 9 inch pan coated with cooking spray. Bake for 35 minutes or a toothpick comes out clean after inserted in the center.
