This rustic cake is a delicious sweet nothings alternative to pie and uses one of the tastiest fruits of the fall harvest—cranberries. The basic recipe is very versatile and can be made with apples, pears, peaches, plums or any full-flavored, slightly acidic fruit. Just arrange the fruit in the skillet before you pour the batter over it. The cake is best served warm; if you can, put it in the oven just before you sit down to dinner.
Like most people, I love dessert. Unfortunately, most desserts are full of sugar, saturated fats, and refined carbohydrates and will ruin your attempts at getting lean and staying healthy. Today I want to share something that is a little more decadent: our sweet nothings protein packed cheesecake recipe. Like my other desserts, I substitute the empty calories for healthier ingredients and add protein to assist in muscle building without sacrificing the taste. Also suitable for diabetics a Win-win!
If you have never tried Carrot Cake because you have an aversion to vegetables in baked goods, I highly suggest you give it a try! The taste is out of this world!
