My husband and I really LOVE the cookbook Southern Plate and I recommend you buy one for yourself. All the recipes we’ve tried so far have been fun to make with the kids and family pleasers. Now this recipe I’m about to share with you isn’t my favorite but the kids and Andrew loved it so I’m happy to share it with you all. To me, it ended up being too soggy. Maybe we were supposed to cook it longer. Guess it doesn’t matter because the two picky eaters loved it the way it was.
Now I’ve also been challenged to switch out truvia as part of the Lunch Makeover Challenge on behalf of truvia, in the place of sugar. We looked on the truvia website to try and find a conversion rate and it said when baking that you can’t really make a clean substitution for baking, see truvia baking and cooking tips, but for this recipe even though you’re baking it, I don’t see how it’s going to affect the texture, because it’s not like a cake. It doesn’t have any flour or baking soda/baking powder in it. Just cook it a shorter amount of time. I’ll leave instructions for both in the post, with sugar and with truvia. Truvia® natural sweetener, a great-tasting, natural, zero-calorie sweetener made from rebiana, the best-tasting part of the stevia leaf. Using Truvia natural sweetener within recipes slashes the calories found in sugar and eliminates concern of a sugar “high” that kids often experience after eating sweets.
Apple Orchard Snack Cake Recipe:
Preheat the oven to 350 Degrees (preheat the oven to 325 using truvia)
Blend the sugar butter and eggs in a large bowl with a spoon
Create the graham cracker crumbs
Stir in the graham cracker crumbs apples until well blended
Spread the batter in the pan and bake for 40 to 45 minutes (30 to 35 minutes using truvia)
Make sure when you pull it out of the oven it is firm to the touch.
Sprinkle liberally with confectioners’ sugar
Cool and then cute into squares.
In conclusions, So some of the truvia conversions may seem complicated but it’s worth the benefits to your family and kids.
We received truvia samples to facilitate this recipe.
