The inspiration for this recipe simply came from some leftover pineapple. I had bought pre-packaged, pre-sliced pineapple and had about a cup of it left — just sitting there in its own juices. So I figured I may as well make something out it instead of letting it go bad.
I’m calling this “pineapple cake” because, although I did follow steps similar to that of a pineapple upside down cake, the cut of pineapple I used as well as the batter I created resulted in a light, fluffy, yet moist cake with the juicy fruit scattered throughout. (more…)
I’m not going to lie, I don’t remember the last time I had a donut. A real donut. And I’m ok with that. I do, however, have a major sweet tooth when it comes to my breakfast meals, so I just couldn’t resist trying my hand at another baked donut recipe — with chocolate!
This pumpkin bread is made with whipped egg whites and greek yogurt, making it lighter — in texture, taste, and calories — than most recipes out there. It’s not too sweet so, while you could enjoy it on its own as a breakfast treat or a healthy dessert, it also pairs nicely with a fresh salad.
I made these cute, less-guilt donuts in lieu of a birthday cake — and they were a big hit!
