My time as a MilkWise ambassador is sadly coming to an end. I have come to really love MilkWise. The flavor is amazing and as a Diabetic, I am thrilled that I can enjoy a glass every so often and not be worried so much because of it’s lower sugar count! I am also happy that MilkWise is absolutely perfect to cook with. As you may remember, I have made a birthday cake for my son with it, I have used it in a few soups here and there and I will include my recipe below for Apple Fritter Cake in which I also used MilkWise. The sky really is the limit…anything you can do with Milk, you can also do with MilkWise. I hereby challenge all my readers to switch out your milk for MilkWise this holiday season. Drink it, cook with it, bake with it, anything you would normally do with milk, do it with MilkWise. It’s so good, that I bet you can’t even tell the difference! To get you started, try my recipe for Apple Fritter Cake, perfect for a Thanksgiving alternative to pie!
- 1/3 cup light brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2/3 cup white sugar
- 1/2 cup butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 cup MilkWise
- 2 apples, peeled and chopped (I like Cortlands, or Galas)
- 1/2 cup of powdered sugar
- 1-3 tablespoons of MIlkWise - (depending on desired thickness of glaze)
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use a 9x5-inch loaf pan and spray with non-stick spray
- Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together in a bowl. Set aside.
- In another medium-sized bowl, beat white sugar and butter together using an electric mixer until smooth.
- Beat in eggs, 1 at a time, until blended in; add in vanilla extract.
- Add flour and baking powder to the creamed butter mixture and mix until blended.
- Mix MilkWise into batter until smooth.
- Pour half the batter into the prepared loaf pan; add half the apples, then half the brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
- Pour the remaining batter over apple layer and top with remaining apples, then the remaining brown sugar/cinnamon mixture.
- Lightly pat apples into batter; swirl brown sugar mixture through apples using knife or spoon.
- Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, about 50-60 minutes.
- To make glaze, mix powdered sugar and MilkWise together until well mixed.
- Let cool before drizzling with glaze.
MilkWise can be found in most New England Grocery stores!
