Randi’s Low Fat Streusel Coffee Cake

Today is National Coffee Cake Day!!!!!

Can you imagine a day dedicated to yummy coffee cake?

What a great day to celebrate.. we have permission to eat yummy coffee cake on this day.

So in honor of #NationalCoffeeCakeDay, I’m going to share my most famous (or maybe it’s just infamous) coffee cake that I make for ALL my guests who I invite over for dinner, or bring to their home when I ask “what I can bring”….teehee…

So here it goes……….

Randi’s Low Fat/Low Sugar Streusel Coffee Cake

Ingredients:

  • 1 box white or yellow cake mix (try the reduced sugar one by Pillsbury)
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1 1/2 cup fat free sour cream
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans
  • 1/4 butter or margarine, chilled
  • 1 cup Splenda Brown Sugar Blend

Directions:

  • Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
  • Measure 2/3 cup of cake mix and put into a medium bowl. Add chocolate chips, nuts, butter/margarine and Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. Mix by hand until crumbly
  • Pour the remaining cake mix into another bowl
  • Add egg whites and sour cream and mix with a blender until smooth
  • Spray a 9-inch springform pan (the kind that has a bottom that drops out) with non-stick cooking spray.
  • Pour 1/2 the batter into the pan. Spread evenly across the bottom
  • Evenly sprinkle 1/2 of the crumbly topping on top.
  • Layer the remaining batter on top of the topping and spread as evenly as you can
  • Top it off with the remaining crumb topping
  • Place in the over for about 30 minutes

And of course …….Enjoy

National Walking Day

Today, April 6, 2016 is National Walking Day!

The American Heart Association recommends at least 150 minutes of moderate physical activity per week for adults… That’s only “20 Minutes” per day… easy cheesy…

It’s so easy to do…

  1. Work full time?
    1. Get up from your desk and use your 15 minute breaks to walk the stairs or walk around your complex
    2. What about your lunch breaks? Can eat and walk at the same time LOL
  2. Going shopping?
    1. Park your car in the farthest spot you can find and walk to the shops
  3. Going out to eat?
    1. Can you walk there? Why not right?
  4. Going to the Beach?
    1. Try taking a walk when you’ve had enough of laying on the sand
  5. Have a dog?
    1. Well.. that’s easy… doggies need exercise too!

See.. it’s really easy to get in 20 minutes of walking every day. And before you know it, you’ve created a new habit to last a life time!

Try it.. GET UP NOW!
