A little while back I undertook a challenge with Canderel to make some #SweetSmart swaps to see if we could cut down our overall sugar content and to replace what sugar we were still eating with Canderel we were shocked at the amount of hidden sugars there were in our everyday foods.
As a family we loved the challenge and with learning to cook and trying to loose weight anything that makes healthier swaps is a bonus for me and this recipe was ideal to use Canderel instead of standard sugar!
When I started this blog I said from the beginning I would blog my food journey with honesty and if something goes wrong I would be honest … well this recipe tripped me up a little as while creating.
*cough cough* OK I totally fudged it with the size of the cake tin I used … I should have really used a 7 inch tin but got carried away and baked it in a 9 inch tin …
Oh and to make matters a little worse .. I forgot the baking powder altogether!
I am still learning but I did spend some time kicking myself … however when I tasted I really didn’t need to be too upset as it was delicious! (even if it looked like a pancake)
- 1 Egg
- 150g (5 oz) caster sugar or to reduce calories replace with (15g Canderel)
- 4 tablespoons semi skimmed milk
- 100g (4 oz) plain flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 40g (1 oz) butter, melted
- 255g (9 ozs) Frozen Fruit (I used Summer fruits)
- Pre heat oven to 180 C/ Gas Mark 4
- Grease the dish or tin you intend to use to cook the cobbler
- Whisk sugar, flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla extract with the milk
- Mix in the pre melted butter
- Rinse fruit and pat to dry
- Pour mix into the dish and sprinkle fruit over the top
- Bake for approx 30 minutes .. you may need to amend the cook time depending upon the wetness of the fruit
- 10 minutes before the end sprinkle over 1 spoon of caster sugar over the top
So there you have it … a lower calorie recipe using Canderel and a steep learning curve for me! Next time I will add in the baking powder and use the correct tin and maybe it won’t look quite so flat!
Next to try out the same recipe with apple instead!
