Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the answer to your question. I'll do some research in Google and get back to you if I got an answer. You should email the people at Nutrisystem as they probably could answer your Nutrisystem question..
Nancy, congrats on being under goal!!.
Do you like the bunt cake? I wish I did but I don't like the spongy consistency. I tried it in the oven but it was the same. Maybe with some baking soda?..
I love the bundt cake. I have one every weekend..
Maybe try frying it like a pancake. I haven't tried that but it sounds good...
I love the idea of the cake but even in other recipes mine have this weird damp texture almost like it's undercooked..
I'm wonding how I could adjust some of the recipes so the cakes or muffins could be a little drier. It must be me because everyone else loves the stuff. I might try it again with less applesauce..
I had the same problem with the Nutrisystem muffin recipe...
This sounds good, but is the ICBINB? I have seen it in a lot of recipes and I do no know what it is. Thanks..
1 breakfast entre + 1 fruit + 1 dairy/protein = complete breakfast.
1 package pancake mix.
1 egg or 3 tbsp egg white or 1/4 cup egg beaters.
1/2 cup unsweetened apple sauce.
1/4 tsp vanilla.
1/4 tsp cinnamon.
1 pkg of splenda.
12 squirts of ICBINB.
2 tbsp sf maple flavored syrup.
1. place pancake mix, cinnamon and sweetener in a bowl and mix; add egg, applesauce, and vanilla. stir well..
2. leave in the bowl and put in microwave. high 3 minutes. Should look like small bundt cake- moist with texture of a sponge cake..
3. turn upside down and spray with ICBINB and drizzle with syrup.[/quote]..
You're right about the texture. And you're idea of a little baking powder might help too. I also wonder if a teaspoon of flour might make it more "cake-y"?.
I love the muffins made with the apple oatmeal, and I've debated trying to add raisins to the recipe instead of having a separate fruit serving. I wonder if that would work and maybe change the texture a bit?..
I made it using the Choco chip mix and 2 tbl. of cocoa and 2 tbls. of coffee in it too. I really liked that! It was good..
I am wondering if I can make this with Hodgkin Mills pancake mix. It is the multi grain???..
LOL I don't know. I'm not really a great baker but I've tried to fool with the recipes. I was thinking of using dried fruit instead of the apple sauce...
ICBINB is I can't believe it's not butter. The spray kind...
Oh, Duh! Thanks. I'm kinda new to all this stuff. Thanks. I will try this recipe now..
Definitely try it!! Even with the moist texture (which may not bother you) it's super filling and a nice treat!..
ICBINB is the I Can't Believe It's Not Butter spray..
See Janet's fruity muffins she took the bundt cake recipe and altered it to use dried fruits recipe in my breakfast file and I believe also in the Nutrisystem recipe club (and of course initial posting on the old recipe board and probably since then too).
Also - try using baby food fruit puree instead of applesauce in the bundt cake (use the 3.5 or 4 oz containers, but watch the calories, they can range from 40-120 depending on what fruit) top with an appropriate fruit compote (take some frozen fruit & heat with a bit of syrup)....
I like to use 1/2 cup of pumpkin for the fruit part. YUM!..
Carol, I made it, then sliced it when cool and put it in the toaster oven for a bit........it was then kind of like eating flavored toast........put some ICBINB spray and sf polaner all fruit as a free food...........kind of gets rid of that 'weird' texture...
Hi Birdie - I have made this recipe with that multigrain pancake mix. It turned out pretty much the same as with the Nutrisystem mix, except tasted "multi-grainy". But not bad at all if you are accumstomed to that taste...
I could be wrong but I think that you could use just about any pancake mix - Heart Smart Bisquick, Krusteaz, Big Train, etc... Lynn would probably know more than I would, but I believe it would be 1/3 cup is the equivalent to Nutrisystem packaged pancakes. Am I right? If I'm wrong, I appologize and I'll go back in my little corner...
Thanks for opinions and they are always appreciated. I think I will start experimenting. The Hodgkin Mills is definitely cheaper. I am going to the health foold stroe soon to see what they have too...
Thanks for the suggestions! I'm not giving up because I love cake and muffins...
Well, I made three of these this morning fooling around with recipes! LOL.
I've come to the conclusion I stink at baking. I'm a pretty good cook but I really don't have the baking touch..
I thought this might be good-.
I used the orange flavoring and used some pieces of manderine orange and thought I'd put some SF orange marmalade on top like the orange danish..
I must have cooked it too long because it came out like a rock!..
Maybe try making it in the oven instead of the microwave? There are a lot of tips out there for the chocolate and apple cakes that recommend using the regular oven so it doesn't get so rubbery............
Cooking time seems to very with the ingredients. If I use banana/milk instead of the applesauce or pumpkin I have to reduce the cooking time in the microwave or it gets rubbery. But it's just that one version I've had problems with...
If you like muffins, try going to Christina Gray's wesite. She has really good recipes that are supper easy and great tasting. You don't have to be a great baker for these, I sure am not!.
Yes, she has great recipes. I wanted to fool with the bunt cake recipe because it's so easy and you don't need lots of ingredients. And if you do it right it's ready right away. This morning I wanted something baked but wasn't in the mood for pancakes...
