Preheat the oven to 350 degrees with the racks in the top and bottom thirds. Line a muffin tin with liners and spray with cooking spray.

Whisk the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and ginger in a bowl. Beat the sugar and butter in a stand mixer and add eggs one at a time. Slowly add the molasses and yogurt. Add the dry ingredients and blend thoroughly.

Drop approximately a tablespoon of batter into each liner and bake until a toothpick inserted to the center comes out clean. This should take about 10-15 minutes. Allow the cakes to rest for 5 minutes, then cool completely on a wire rack.

Once cook, remove from the liners and trim to form cylinders. Roll in the warm ganache and allow to cool again on the wire rack.
