Sugar Free Bread Pudding~Marilyn

Sugar Free Bread Pudding
1 1/4 loaves French or Italian bread without seeds
6 eggs-room temperature
3/4 cup Natures Crystals (Splenda will NOT work)
1 1/2 cups skim milk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Tear bread into bite size pieces early in day and allow to sit in air stirring every once in a while so that all the bread gets dry. Spray Pam in a large rectangular pan. After bread has dried out, slowly pour milk over it until saturated. Add sugar substitute. Add eggs and mix with a spoon. It is important that the eggs are room temp and that you do not mix with a mixer. Once eggs are incorporated, pour batter into prepared pan and bake at 350 degrees for about an hour. It will puff up like a soufflé. While baking make sauce of your choice.


1/2 cup I can't Believe its not butter
1/2 cup Nature's Crystals Powdered sugar substitute
1 egg

5 Minute Pumpkin Cake

There is nothing like pumpkin when there is a fall crispness in the air! I got the idea from Michelle (Eggface). She made the sugar free version of the 5 minute chocolate cake the other day. So I thought I would experiment! Here's my version:

Scott’s 5 Minute Sugar Free Pumpkin Cake

2 Egg, beaten
3 Tablespoons Milk (I used Hood’s Calorie Countdown)
4 Tablespoons Cinn-a-bliss2 Tablespoons Canola Oil
6 Tablespoons Rolled Oats (Grind it into a flour)
3 Tablespoons Canned Pumpkin
1 Tablespoon Splenda
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1 Teaspoon Pumpkin Pie Spice

Mix egg, milk, Cinn-a-bliss, pumpkin and oil and combine thoroughly. In a separate container, grind oatmeal into a flour type consistency. I use my magic bullet for this. Add the rest of your dry ingredients to the oatmeal and mix well. Tip dry into wet and stir till combined.

Pour into microwave safe bowls. I used 3 small ramekins, and it worked well. Microwave for 5 minutes. Top with Sugar Free Whipped Topping and drizzle with Cinn-a-bliss or Smuckers Sugar free Caramel Topping and enjoy!
