Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat an 8-inch square pan with butter or coconut oil and line with parchment paper leaving a 2 inch overhang on two sides. Coat paper with your oil or butter.
In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, pumpkin
Use an electric mixer to beat together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy and then beat in eggs one at a time. Add the molasses and sour cream.
Reduce the mixer speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture. Gently fold in the apples.
Pour the batter into your pan and bake until a wooden pick inserted into the center comes out clean, 55 to 60 minutes.
Let cool 15 minutes and remove from pan and place on wire rack to cool completely.
