What would happen if ...

If I tried to make a slightly healthier version of my adapted version of the famous Swedish Visiting Cake. And what if I used a smaller and taller pan to make it even cuter?

This is what happened. It's a mini-cake! Or a GIGANTIC cupcake! And it was still really good. I'm having so much fun with this cake. Below is the recipe at the moment. I'm sure I'll think of something new to do with it next week. I think I'm becoming obsessed with this recipe.

It's getting to be almost as bad as the World Peace Cookies! I'm going to refer to my version of this cake as the Pi version, because I think that I'll be baking and adapting this cake infinitum.

Swedish Visiting Cake - The Pi Version
(Adapted from Dorie Greenspan)

1/2 stick unsalted butter = 4T or 1/4 cup (melted)
1/4 cup vanilla yogurt
1/4 cup Splenda
scant 3/4 cup sugar
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 tsp. salt
1 cup flour
scant 1/4 cup sweetened flaked coconut (for topping)

Combine all ingredients except for coconut in medium bowl. Stir well. I used a large ceramic ramekin to bake this. I think that's still the correct term even if it's not individually sized. Please correct me if I'm wrong. It took longer than before to bake - close to an hour at 350 degrees.

Let cool before removing from pan. Top with coconut and admire the sheer cuteness of this little cake.

*Updated* Starbucks is giving out free coffee tomorrow! Below is an excerpt from this press release.
"Visit any participating U.S. Starbucks store on Tuesday, April 8 at 9 a.m. Pacific Time (12 p.m. Eastern Time) and Starbucks will give all customers a complimentary short (8 oz.) cup of the new Pike Place Roast™ to enjoy as they participate in a simultaneous, nationwide, coast-to-coast, coffee tasting conducted by Starbucks coffee experts."

Hopefully all tips will go to the, ahem, correct parties.

kaylee - I'm glad that I was able to put a smile on your face for a little while at least. Keep getting better! :D

suldog - LOL! It was great!

dmarks - The original version of the recipe doesn't call for coconut. I made a bunch of changes and just added it for fun. : )
