 FF Gingerbread
 Recipe adapted from the Enchanted Broccoli Forest by Mollie Katzen and an
 earlier post
 1/2 cup honey
 1/2 cup molasses
 5 Tbs cooked, mashed sweet potato or winter squash
 1 egg white
 1/2 cup nonfat yogurt, plain or vanilla
 1 cup whole wheat flour
 1 cup unbleached white flour
 1 1/2 tsp. baking soda
 1/4 tsp. salt
 2 tsp. ginger (more to taste)
 1 tsp. cinnamon
 1 tsp. dry mustard
 1/2 tsp. allspice
 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
 Beat honey and molasses 5 minutes.  Add yogurt, egg white and sweet potato
 and beat until well mixed.
 Combine dry ingredients and mix well. 
 Add wet to dry and mix thoroughly but minimally.
 Pour into a square pan or round cake pan sprayed lightly with Pam.
 Bake in a 350 F oven,  30 minutes or until knife/toothpick inserted in center
 comes out clean.  Start watching it early - when it starts to brown it's
 probably becoming overcooked.  
 We like to break it up in pieces in a bowl, warm it a bit in the microwave,
 pour on some maple syrup and milk and eat it like cereal.
