Tim was having sugar cravings after the double fudge brownies this last weekend. I had 1 (and 1 bite) but I was a good girl (mostly) and stuck to my diet. The Mediterranean diet does not have many sweets included. After some research yesterday (and some apples I needed to use) I found this wonderful little cake. Only 130 calories per serving! No butter or oil in the batter! It is a spongy cake, with a wonderful flavor and for only 1/3 cup of sugar (I used organic) it was sweet enough. Tim liked it too! The recipe did call for a honey drizzle if not sweet enough, which Tim did and I refrained. I sliced it in 8 pieces when cooled so each piece is cut to size for the 130 calories. Not the best cake I have ever made, but it was a great way to use up some apples I had and curb a sweet tooth. We will be trying this one again. The recipe was pretty plain, so I added a splash of vanilla and cinnamon. Really set it off! Almost 3 weeks and still NO BUTTER for me! I never would have thought it possible.
-23 here this morning. Tonight and Thursday night it is going to be in the -40's...actually temperature! It is cold, but the sun has been out and just beautiful this week. I think I would rather have COLD sunny days, then warmer dreary days. My car started yesterday. Going to wait till the sun warms up the car a bit and probably make a small grocery run today before the real arctic sets in. No relief in sight for the cold. Was hoping to make church this Sunday?
