Graham cracker crumb crust with blackberries.
I believe we're all familiar with the recipe to bake a cake by mixing a standard cake mix with a 12 ounce diet soda. The calories are much reduced because the eggs and oil are eliminated. Your cake still bakes up moist and fluffy.
I recently saw my brother eat one of these microwave mini cakes that they have in the cake mix aisle. That, combined with a recent post basically describing how to make such a (full calorie) microwave mini cake from scratch got me thinking--would the diet soda recipe work on a small scale in the microwave?
I used Alton's recipe (below) but with Olive oil, pecans, and craisins.
Tastes just like banana bread, but just a little bit lighter or fluffier of a texture. Makes 12 muffins. For an interesting twist and 1 tsp. cinnamon, or 1 c. chopped nuts, or 1c. shredded coconut. (Nutrition Facts are for the recipe as listed in the ingredient list.)
