Shelly's 5 Minute Sugar Free Banana Caramel Nut Cake
1 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk (I used Vanilla Soy)
2 Tablespoons Sugar Free Torani Syrup (I used SF Caramel)
2 Tablespoons Banana, mashed
2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
3 Tablespoons Multigrain Pancake Mix (I use this)
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 Tablespoon Pecans, chopped
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Measuring Cup or Microwave Safe Mug
In a measuring cup or microwave safe mug, Mix egg, milk, syrup, banana and oil and combine thoroughly. In a separate bowl, mix pancake mix, cinnamon, nutmeg, nuts, protein powder and salt. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined.
Nuke in microwave for 2 minutes*.
Let it sit for three or so minutes (it pulls away from the sides) before tipping the cake onto a plate. Yields 4-5 slices.
*Microwave wattage varies. Mine takes 2 minutes but start with 2 minutes and add 20 second increments if needed till no liquid is seen.
For a dessert I topped the cake with Land o Lakes Sugar Free Whipped Cream, Smucker's Sugar Free Caramel Sauce, sliced Banana and a sprinkle of chopped Pecans. Slices of this are great toasted for breakfast too. It's a total banana nut muffin fix.
Highlights of the day:
* WOW moment: So I went for a pedicure (yay for sexy toes) and the girl I always go to said, "I saw you in our parking lot the other day with some guy" and then she said... "you look so tiny next to him."
* Went to visit my neighbor today. She just was released from the hospital. Her kidney transplant of 7 years failed and she's back on dialysis. I thought she'd be devastated and was prepared to give the optimistic pep talk but she had such an amazing roll with the punches attitude. A good lesson. Actually I had a few life lessons today from friends. I always say people come into your life for a reason.
* Making a big pot of lentil soup today. Yes. Fall. Soup weather.
