2. Stir together flour, salt and baking soda in a medium-size bowl until well blended.

3. Beat together sugar and butter in large bowl on medium-low speed until coarse crumbs form. Add eggs, applesauce, apple juice concentrate and ginger; mix on low speed just until eggs are beaten. Gradually beat in flour mixture just until blended. Stir in apple. Spread in prepared pan.
