PINEAPPLE RIGHT SIDE UP CAKE

  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1 8oz can crushed pineapple, drain and reserve juice
  • 1/3 cup skim milk
  • 1/3 cup egg substitute (i.e. Egg Beaters) or 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 3/4 cups flour
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350. Spray a 9" square pan with cooking spray. Stir together the applesauce, reserved pineapple juice, milk, egg substitute, and vanilla. Combine flour, white sugar and baking powder. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients. Spread batter in the pan. Sprinkle the top of the batter with crushed pineapple. Sprinkle brown sugar over the pineapple. Bake for 30 minutes until a toothpick tests clean. Cool 10 minutes. Serve warm.

12 servings, 2 POINTS each

Just the cake without the pineapple and topping might make a nice light cake to use for a strawberry shortcake. Try flavoring it with almond extract instead of vanilla.

**NOTE TO MY FRIENDS**
Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
