A slice of this sweet treat supplies nearly 20 percent of your daily fiber.


  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons plus 1/2 cup light brown sugar
  • 3 small red apples (preferably Macintosh), cored and cut into eighths
  • 1 3/4 cups whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk



1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
2. Place a 10-inch ovenproof skillet over medium heat and add butter. Stir in 2 tablespoons of the brown sugar. Cook 2 minutes until sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is bubbling.
3. Arrange apple slices in a single layer in the skillet. Cook 5 minutes, then turn over and cook 5 more minutes. Remove from heat; set aside.
4. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, ground ginger, cinnamon, and salt. Set aside. In a large bowl, stir together remaining ½ cup brown sugar, oil, eggs, molasses, and fresh ginger. Using an electric mixer, combine at medium speed for 2 minutes. Add half of the flour mixture, then buttermilk, finishing with the remaining flour mixture.
5. Pour batter over apples and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Let cool in skillet for 5 minutes. Loosen edges with a knife, invert onto a serving platter, and serve warm.
