Have you Saved Room for Dessert? I hope you save room for dessert, in moderation of course, every day. Denying ourselves a small treat, day in and day out, can only be difficult on the psyche, and life is difficult enough as it is without us making ourselves dessert-less martyrs. Even if we have dietary restrictions or some specific food allergies, it does not mean we cannot enjoy life with a bit of dessert.
Case in point are the two recipes I’m featuring today.
Snowhite of Finding Joy in My Kitchen not only makes a fat-free cake, but she makes it in her Crock Pot. That’s an important extra bonus for those of us who live in hot climates! She slow cooks a beautiful and tasty Fat-Free Crock Pot Apple Cake and shared the recipe with us. There’s no butter, oil or shortening, but it’s still moist. She has a trick. Do you know how she does it?
Chaya of Comfy Cook was able to cut about half the calories of a Nigella Lawson recipe for Triple Chocolate Brownies, and also transformed it to be gluten-free, just so her husband would not be denied dessert. She cut the recipe in half so they would eat in moderation, and used gluten-free flour.

If you haven’t already done so, go take a look at their recipes, and visit these blogs too, while you are there. Both ladies are very good bakers with lots of delicious recipes in their archives.
