TRIPLE TREAT CHOCOLATE POKE CAKE

Vinegar and mayonnaise in a triple chocolate dessert? It does seem
impossible, but these are just two of the secret ingredients that deliver
more chocolate taste per bite than almost any treat in town! Everyone loves
the sweet surprises inside this special cake. JoAnna Lund

Serves 12

1 1/3 cups Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder

1 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 cup Kraft fat-free mayonnaise
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup Nestle Quik sugar-free chocolate mix
1/2 cup hot water
1 (4-serving) package JELL-O sugar-free instant chocolate pudding mix
1/2 cup Cool Whip Free

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9-by-13-inch cake pan with
butter-flavored cooking spray. In a small bowl, combine 2/3 cup dry milk
powder, 1 cup cold water, and vinegar. Set aside. In a large bowl, combine
flour, Sugar Twin, cocoa, baking powder, and baking soda. Add mayonnaise,
milk mixture, and 2 teaspoons vanilla extract. Mix gently just to combine.

of a fork. In a small bowl, combine dry Nestle Quik and hot water. Spread

JOANNA LUND

Monthly Food Newsletter (December 2003) p.4

Reader Requests
While speaking at Swiss Valley Gals in Prairie du Chien, WI a voice
in the crowd shared a recipe for a high caloried dessert she wanted
me to revise. One bite and I'm betting you'll be glad I did.

1 cup cake flour
1-1/2 cups Splenda Granular
12 egg whites
1-1/2 teaspoons cream of tartar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/4 teaspoon table salt
2 (4-serving) pkgs. JELL-O sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
4 cups fat-free milk
2 cups Cool Whip Free
2 (2.1 ounce) Butterfinger candy bars

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a small bowl, combine cake flour and
3/4 cup Splenda. Mix well using a wire whisk. Place egg whites in a
very large mixing bowl. Beat egg whites with an electric mixer on HIGH
until foamy. Add cream of tartar, vanilla extract, and salt. Continue
beating until stiff enough to form soft peaks. Add remaining 3/4 cup
Splenda, 2 tablespoons at a time, while continuing to beat egg whites
until stiff peaks form. Add the flour mixture, 1/2 cup at a time,
folding in with spatula or wire whisk. Pour batter into an ungreased
9-by-13-inch metal cake pan. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes or until cake
springs back when lightly touched. DO NOT OVERBAKE. Place cake pan on
a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Cut cake into 36 pieces.
Layer half of pieces in a trifle or large glass bowl. In a medium
bowl, combine 1 package dry pudding mix and 2 cups milk. Mix well
using a wire whisk. Blend in 1/2 cup Cool Whip Free. Spoon mixture
evenly over cake pieces. Cut 1 candy bar into 12 pieces. Evenly
sprinkle candy pieces over pudding. Layer remaining cake pieces over
top. In same medium bowl, combine remaining package dry pudding mix
and remaining 2 cups milk. Mix well using a wire whisk. Blend in 1/2
cup Cool Whip Free. Spoon mixture evenly over cake pieces. Refrigerate
for 5 minutes. Spread remaining 1 cup Cool Whip Free evenly over set
filling. Cut remaining candy bar into 12 pieces. Evenly sprinkle candy
bar pieces over top. Cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Divide into 12 servings.

I have JoAnna's Rocky Road Bars in the oven .I copy/pasted the recipe
from the eGroups board and I'm pretty sure the recipe has an error.It
calls for 1 cup of water in the brownie base{crust} but i'm wondering
if it should only be 1/2 cup or less.The batter is thinner than a
cream soup.I'll add the recipe in with this message and hope someone
can help me.I needed this for a dinner party dessert!!Feel free to
email me.thanks a lot!!



POSTED REPLIES TO THIS MESSAGESubject: Re: HELP with an ingredient..
From: Elsie in HI
Carol, I have the cookbook that this recipe is from, and according to
the book (Cooking Healthy...Kids, p.262) the amount of water, 1 cup,
is correct. hope this helps, and hope your bars turned out great.
Haven't tried this one, let us know how they are!

From: Carol
Wellllllllll, the baking time took about 20 minutes as the batter is
quite runny.Once done I added on the nuts, chocolate chips and
marshmallows & did it in the oven for 5 mins.They seem to be fine but
I cut them while still warm.I think it would be better to chill first
and then cut.Also, next time I will add a we bit of salt.But they are
tasty and I will make them again!!

From: Jen
I think 1/2 cup of water would be more than sufficient for this
recipe. Must be a misprint.

From: Carol
I kind of wondered about using only the 1/2 cup.The 'cake'{using 1
cup} turned out okay but doesn't have the 'brownie texture'.Thanks
for the tip!!

Papa's Pecan Tassies
Joanna Lund
KWQC-TV6 02/21/2002


I created these to please my husband, Cliff, who is known as "Papa" to his grandkids. You may find it amazing that just one half cup of nuts can make 20 spectacularly good cookies - just a little kitchen magic, thank you very much! Serves 10 (2 each)

1 purchased refrigerated unbaked 9-inch piecrust
1/2 cup SPLENDA Granular
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 egg or equivalent in egg substitute
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Unfold piecrust. Using a 2-1/2-inch biscuit cutter, cut into 12 circles. Press dough scraps together and cut out 8 more circles for a total of 20 circles. Pat pastry circles into miniature muffin (or tassie) cups. Press to form tarts. In a medium saucepan, combine SPLENDA Granular, cornstarch, egg, and water. Cook over medium heat until mixture thickens and starts to boil, stirring constantly. Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla extract and pecans. Evenly spoon about 1 tablespoon mixture into each tart. Bake for 16 to 20 minutes. Place muffin pans on a wire rack and allow to cool for 10 minutes. Remove tassies from pans and continue cooling on wire rack.

JoAnna Lund - HE Newsletter from March 1997

3/4 cup plain nonfat yogurt*
1/3 cup nonfat dry milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 tablespoons Splenda - or to taste
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 teaspoon Jo's apple pie spice (or cinnamon)

Combine yogurt and dry milk powder. Stir in vanilla extract and Splenda. Add the applesauce and spice and mix well to combine. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes.

Diabetic Exchange: 1 Milk and 1 Fruit
140 calories/ 0 gram fat / 311 ml Calcium / 1 gram fiber
3 Points

* Sometimes I use the whole small carton (8 ounces; other times I made this using a quart size nonfat plain yogurt and followed the recipe with 3/4 cup (6 ounces). Both ways worked fine. And it stays good in the refrigerator for next day. This would be good any time of the day not just breakfast but it is a nice change and a pretty low point breakfast and adds a milk and fruit to the day's count.

Baked Alaska
(Cooking Healthy Across America cookbook)

2 eggs or equivalent in egg substitute
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1/2 cup skim milk
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon reduced-calorie margarine
1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup + 2 tablespoons pourable Sugar Twin or Sprinkle Sweet
1 teaspoon baking powder
6 egg whites
1/4 teaspoon cream of tartar
4 cups Wells' Blue Bunny sugar-free and fat-free strawberry ice cream or any sugar- and fat-free ice
cream

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9x9 inch cake pan with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a
large bowl, combine eggs and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. Stir in skim milk and margarine. Add flour,
3/4 cup Sugar Twin, and baking powder. Mix just to combine. Pour batter into prepared cake pan.
(Batter will be thin.) Bake for 22 to 26 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out
clean. Remove cake from pan and allow to cool on a wire rack. Increase oven temperature to 500
degrees. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat eggs whites with an electric mixer until soft peaks form.
Add remaining 6 tablespoons Sugar Twin, remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and cream of
tartar. Continue beating until stiff peaks form. To assemble, place a piece of brown paper on a
baking sheet, arrange partially cooled cake on paper, place ice cream in a mound on cake, and
cover cake and ice cream evenly with meringue mixture. Bake for 3 to 5 minutes or just until
meringue browns. Remove from oven, cut into 8 servings and serve immediately.

HINT: 1. Egg whites beat best at room temperature.
2. Meringue cuts easily if you dip a sharp knife in warm water before cutting.
