Ok I had this for breakfast today with a few changes and it was really good! I used 1 cup whole wheat flour and 1 cup unbleached flour and then I used 1/2 cup fruit concentrate and 1 cup splenda because I was in a hurry and only had 1/2 cup of concentrate made up. anyway it was so very good!
Really warmed us up along with bacon and scrambled eggs for a late breakfast- can’t believe I slept until 8am! I make up fruit concentrate with frozen unsweetened apple or white grape juice. a 12 oz container is 1 1/2 cups.
I boil that up until it is reduced to 1 cup and that is my fruit concentrate. You can replace sugar in most recipes using half as much fruit concentrate as the sugar. Like in this recipe I would of used 1 cup concentrate instead of 2 cups sugar.
It works very well in cakes unlike Splenda. I found it works best with fruit or chocolate cakes. white cakes you can taste the apple so I use half the fruit concentrate and make the other have Splenda.
It didn’t work in Pumpkin pies either. I used half fruit concentrate and half splenda to get it to taste right. I have a chocolate raspberry torte cake that is to die for that I’ll try to post later on.
My dh is borderline diabetic and my liver is about gone so i have to be careful what i eat and sugar is a very big no, no. but i have experimented and found a way to make the whole grain and no sugar thing work so i can have my cake and eat it too!
oh my gosh it frigid cold here today and suppose to be colder tomorrow! my toes feel like permanent ice cubes!
