Cooking for Two, pg 249 by Joanna Lund
Need a good reason for climbing out of bed in the morning, especially on the weekend? You're not alone! These are fruity-good, bright, and sunny-tasting.
2 teaspoons I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Light Margarine
2 tablespoons egg substitute
1 tablespoon Splenda Granular
2 tablespoons Diet Mountain Dew
6 tablespoons Bisquick Heart Smart Baking Mix
1 1/2 tablespoons orange marmalade spreadable fruit
1 tablespoon chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Spray 2 muffin wells with butter-flavored cooking spray or line with paper liners. In a medium bowl, combine margarine, egg substitute, and Splenda. Stir in Diet Mountain Dew. Add baking mix, orange marmalade, and pecans. Mix gently to combine. Evenly spoon batter into prepared muffin wells. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Place muffin pan on a wire rack and let set for 5 minutes. Remove muffins from pan and continue cooling on wire rack.
Hint: Fill unused muffin wells with water. It protects the muffin tin and ensures even baking.
