I need a tried & true recipe for low-sugar, high-fiber coffee cake.

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking something with oatmeal and maybe some kind of fruit (raisins, apples, or peaches) and maybe a glaze. I don't want artificial sweetners, just a coffee cake that's not overly sweet. Got a recipe that sounds like that?

I don't have a recipe to offer (sorry!) because I just adapt basic recipes. To add fiber, if the recipe calls for 2 cups of flour, I use 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1/2 cup white flour, and 1/2 cup oat bran. It makes a marvelous texture for coffee cake! You can also add fruit--e.g., finely chopped granny smith apples and a rounded teaspoon or two of cinnamon.


My suggestion would be to start with a good basic cookbook recipe and then alter ingredients little-by-little until you achieve perfection! :D

I haven't tried this, but it's been on my list of recipes I want to try for a while.


Applesauce Cake

Yield: 12 servings

2 cups Flour (I use 1 cup unbleached and 1 cup whole wheat)

1 cup Sugar

1 tbsp. Cornstarch

2 tsp. Baking soda

1/2 tsp. Salt

1/2 tsp. Cinnamon

1/4 tsp. Ginger

1/8 tsp. Cloves

1/4 tsp. Mace

20 oz Unsweetened applesauce

1/2 cup Raisins

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.


Mix the dry ingredients together; then add the applesauce and stir. Bake for 45-60 minutes, depending on the size of pan you use: more for small, deep pans and less for a 9 X 13 pan. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center; it's done when the toothpick comes out clean.
