Crockpot Cinnamon Sweet Potato & Apple 'pudding'

Submitted by: CCKELLY3

Introduction

An alternate dessert for the holidays, rich and sweet and yummy but only slightly decadent. If you crumble cinnamon graham crackers over the top, it's almost an inverted pie:)

If you're daring, try an optional pinch of cayenne. It will give a nice warming quality to the dish, but don't add enough to give it real "heat".

Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    2-3 large sweet potatoes, about 2 cups worth
    2 large baking apples (such as Granny Smith)
    1/2 cup raisins, not packed into cup
    1/2 cup unsweetened apple juice
    1/2 cup Splenda for baking
    2 Tbs black strap molasses
    2 Tbs lite butter or Country Crock lite margarine with Omega-3.
    1 tsp cinnamon + 1 cinnamon stick
    1/2 tsp nutmeg
    1/4 tsp cloves
    1/4 tsp ginger
    1/8 tsp cardamon
    **scant pinch (1/16th tsp) cayenne (optional)


Directions

This should make 4 generous servings, that's what the nutrition info is evaluated from.

1. Peel and cut the yams/sweet potatoes into large cubes. Core the apples and cut into large chunks. Peeling is optional, I leave it on for the vitamins, however if it bothers you in the final dish, then peel.

2. Place the apple, raisins, potatoes and cinnamon stick in the bottom of a crock pot. Melt the butter and pour over the fruit. Stir the molasses into the apple juice and pour over the fruit. --If using Cayenne, also stir this into the apple juice so you don't get 'hot spots'.

3. Mix the spices together into the splenda and sprinkle over the fruit.

4. Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours. Serve warm with whipped cream, ice cream, slivered almonds or crumbled cinnamon graham crackers. Also great added to oatmeal on chilly mornings.
