2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons cocoa powder
1 tablespoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/2 tablespoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup apple butter
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup honey
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 large egg
1 cup strong coffee
1 tablespoon ginger -- finely chopped

Preparation / Directions:

Whisk all the dry ingredients together in a medium bowl. Mix all the liquid ingredients in a large bowl, using an electric mixer if possible because everything should be well blended. Add the dry ingredients to the liquid ingredients about a third at a time, mixing the batter well after each addition. Pour the rich, dark batter into an oiled or greased nine-by-nine cake pan. Bake about an hour at 350ΓΈ, until the gingerbread is nice and fluffy and a toothpick poked into the center comes out clean. Baking this makes the house smell wonderful, too.
