Preheat the oven to 350° F. Spray a 9-inch square baking pan with vegetable cooking spray; dust with whole wheat flour, tapping out the excess. Set pan aside. Place the oil, molasses, and honey in a small saucepan; place over moderate heat until hot. Set aside to cool slightly.
Sift the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmeg into a mixing bowl; add the oil mixture, applesauce, apple, egg, raisins, and wheat germ. Mix just until blended, no longer. Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the center (timing can vary; do not overbake). Let the cake cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into 16 squares. Serve garnished with thin slices of red and green apple, plus cinnamon sticks and/or honey-flavored yogurt.
