Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

​Craving cake but only want a small amount? Jordan's coffee cake recipe makes just two portions with less than 250 calories and only 7 grams of fat apiece. White whole wheat flour boosts the fiber without weighing it down, and the combination of applesauce and fat-free sour cream brings moisture and richness in lieu of higher fat ingredients. You could add a few fresh berries to the top for a pop of color, though it's pretty enough to serve on its own.

Crumble Coffee Cake For Two

  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 30 mins
  • Servings: 2

Ingredients

Cake Ingredients:

1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/16 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup organic fat-free sour cream
1/3 cup Truvia Baking Blend
1 1/2 tablespoons liquid eggbeaters or egg-whites
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Crumble ingredients:

1 tablespoon whole wheat flour
1 tablespoon Truvia Baking Blend, “Brown Sugar”
1 teaspoon Truvia Baking Blend
dash of ground cinnamon (optional)
1 tablespoon butter or butter alternative

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix together flour, salt and baking powder well.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk applesauce and sour together. Add in Truvia Baking Blend (or sugar) and eggbeaters. Pour in vanilla and stir until all ingredients are mixed.
  4. Fold wet mix into dry mix, whisking until smooth.
  5. In a small bowl, add ingredients for crumble topping. Stir until mix turns into crumbles.
  6. Pour batter into two non-stick, individual-sized baking pans and sprinkle with crumble (or one baking pan if desired).
  7. Bake for about 30 – 35 minutes if using single pan. If you split your batter and are baking it in two individual-sized trays or in muffin tins, your time will need to be decreased substantially. In the case of muffins, I would prepare to bake batter for about 12 – 16 minutes, and in the case of two individual baking pans, I would set my timer for about 20 minutes, checking batter often until each cake passes the toothpick test: stick a toothpick in the center of your cake and continue baking until it comes out clean without any wet batter.
  8. Serve immediately or store at room temperature, well covered. Enjoy!

    I’m actually curious if this would work with dairy substitutes too, like coconut milk for the sour cream, mashed banana for the egg beaters and coconut oil for the butter. Too many substitutes?

      Unsure about the coconut milk for sour cream because the consistency is different, but the other 2 should be fine.

      I would probably use more unsweetened apple sauce instead of egg beaters.

      I’ve tried using mashed bananas as an egg-substitute before and it added a nice banana flavor to the cake! If you don’t want the banana taste to overpower, flax seed meal also works great as a substitute for the egg beaters.
