This is a case of having your cake and eating it, too. One bite of this delightful treat and you’ll be singing the praises of “common folk” healthy food just like my family does.

Sugar substitute to equal 1/2 cup sugar, suitable for baking

1/2 cup fat-free milk

2 tablespoons no-fat sour cream

1 egg or equivalent in egg substitute

1 teaspoon vanilla extract
