A wonderful lower-fat cake/muffin recipe that's easy to make as everything is mixed by hand --- this recipe was tested and developed using low-fat yogurt although I would think that low-fat sour cream may be substituted with good results --- visit www.kittencalskitchen.com for more low-fat recipes!
This recipe is from cooks.com. I am planning on making this for a dinner party I am throwing in honor of a friend who has been really successful with Weight Watchers. I'd like to print out a menu for her with the points values.
I found this in Cooking Light ages ago.. it is INCREDIBLY LIGHT, bursting with blueberries and uses buttermilk instead of fat. I serve it as a dessert with a drop of whip cream. I usually use frozen berries with no problem. Perfect for smaller families and freezes well!
This wonderfully moist and fruity cake contains no refined sugar or fat. It’s also free of eggs and dairy products, which means it’s suitable for vegans, or anyone trying to cut down a little. Once tested, all who have tried it want the recipe.
I have been carrying the recipe around with me on a faded piece of paper since 1988. I will never forget the day I baked this for my Papa's birthday. He never liked cakes or any desserts much and rarely bothered to even taste them, but much to my family's surprise he even asked for seconds of this one! What a proud and triumphant moment for a granddaughter who was still in elementary school :) I haven't made this in many years, but I do remember that it is very simple, moist and tasty!
I love this unusual gingerbread recipe and have always gotten great reviews. I got the recipes years ago from a cookbook that Benson & Hedges put out. (I haven't smoked since 1986 so you can tell that I have had this for a long time.)
