Hello friends, the round up for low fat baking recipes is finally here! It got delayed because my husband was quite busy the past week and he was able to help me only today. I would like to thank each and every participant for flooding my inbox with so many healthy baking recipes. I wish I could distribute prizes to everybody, but at this moment I’m restricting to two. Yes, we decided to choose 2 entries at random instead of 1 I had mentioned in the event announcement. Want to find out who the winners are and the prizes?

I followed the exact recipe as mentioned in above link. The only change I made was, I baked it in a 9 inch round cake pan and I decorated it with Banana Slices. We had a ‘Summer Dessert Bake Off’ at work. I was really scared by the look of it; Nonetheless it was a huge hit. I did not add any nuts to keep it fat free.

I added Light Vanilla Soy milk, water and made pancakes.
