"A recipe I twiddled and tweaked to come up with. It has a distinct taste of honey, and the spices are allowed to shine through. Sometimes, I add some cocoa powder for that subtle taste. Hope you like this, its one of the first recipes I managed to really tweak up nicely."

I followed the recipe exact, only using dried cranberries instead of raisins and I omitted the cocoa powder. I don't keep parchment paper on hand, I just sprayed my pan with a little non-stick c...

I used only whole wheat flour, and changed the applesauce to pumpkin puree. Wonderful taste!
