Servings: 4


  • vegetable cooking spray
  • ½ cup low-fat baking mix
  • 6 tablespoons spoonable sugar substitute
  • 2 tablespoons chopped walnuts
  • 2 medium Granny Smith apples
  • 2 ½ tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • ¼ cup liquid egg substitute
  • 2 tablespoons packed light brown sugar


  1. Lightly coat a 6-inch microwave-safe round baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine baking mix, sugar substitute, and walnuts. Coarsely grate 1 unpeeled apple, discarding the core. Add to bowl along with oil, vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, and egg substitute. Beat for 2 minutes.
  3. Spoon mixture into prepared dish, cover with waxed paper, and microwave on HIGH 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, core remaining apple and thinly slice. Arrange apple slices on top of partially cooked cake and sprinkle with brown sugar.
