Gorgeous Gingerbread recipe.
Applesauce works well, but in this recipe prune puree works even better. Baby food prunes are okay, but you are also buying some preservatives and possibly some fillers. It is more economical to buy pitted prunes, heat them in some water, and puree them yourself in a blender or food processor. I then measure it out in 1-cup amounts and freeze these separately if they are not needed right away.
