Curried Beef Short Ribs

Ginger Yumminess

When we went to Jeff's parents' this weekend I brought Old-Fashioned Cider-Gingerbread Bundt Cake (recipe below). It was easy to make, traveled well and was very moist and yummy. I substituted apple sauce for the apple butter because I couldn't find any at the store.

Old-Fashioned Cider-Gingerbread Bundt Cake

2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon ground ginger
2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup blackstrap molasses
3/4 cup apple cider
1/2 cup apple butter
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup egg substitute or 1 egg white
1 1/3 cups shredded peeled Granny Smith apple (about 1 apple)
Cooking spray
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

Preheat oven to 350°.
Lightly spoon the flour into dry measuring cups; level with a knife. Combine the flour and the next 5 ingredients (flour through salt) in a bowl. Combine granulated sugar and next 5 ingredients (granulated sugar through egg substitute) in a large bowl; beat at medium speed of a mixer 2 minutes. Add flour mixture; beat until well-blended. Add apple; beat well. Pour batter into a 12-cup Bundt pan coated with cooking spray. Bake cake at 350° for 55 minutes or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 10 minutes; invert cake onto a wire rack, and cool completely. Sift powdered sugar over cake.

Yield: 16 servings (serving size: 1 slice)
