2/3 cup yogurt or applesauce (I used applesauce but in the future I’ll be using yogurt)
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cups flour
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
zest of one orange
1-2 tablespoons minced crystalized ginger
For the Glaze:
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup water
zest of 1 orange
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and set aside. Combine yogurt, and sugar in mixing bowl and beat for 2-4 minutes till sugar is well combined and a little dissolved, add egg. Add vanilla, and then dry ingredients alternating with orange juice. Pour into 9-inch round pan and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or till toothpick comes out clean.
For the glaze bring all ingredients to a boil till sugar dissolved then pour over cooling cake. Let sit for 15 min.
