If you don't tell anyone this recipe is 'sugar free', they won't know - it's really delicious and easy to make. Adapted instructions for Australia are included as well.
Ingredients
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Egg Whites
  • ¾ Cups Splenda (or sugar)
  • ½ Cups Low-fat Baking Mix (see recipes list)
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 (12oz) can Evaporated Milk (Lite / Low Fat)
  • 2 Cups Pumpkin (or 1 can 15oz solid-pack pumpkin)
Serve With:
  • Whipped Topping (Lite / Low Fat) or Cool Whip
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350f or 200c (forced air fan)
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the egg, egg whites, pumpkin, Splenda/sugar, homemade baking mix, vanilla and spices until smooth.
  3. Gradually stir in evaporated milk. Pour into 9in baking pan (I use a deeper flat bottomed baking bowl instead) that’s been coated with non-stick cooking spray.
  4. Bake at 350f / 200c for 35-40 minutes or until knife inserted near the centre comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack. Serve with a dollop of whipped topping. Refrigerate any leftovers.
Notes

If using Butternut Squash, cut the squash lengthwise and scoop out strings and seeds. Hard to get out strings will come out easily after baking. Place on a foil wrapped baking tray (one with sides) with the skin side up and cook at 180c-200c (about 350f-375f) for about an hour or until very soft. Remove from oven and allow to cool. Scoop out any remaining strings, then scoop pumpkin into measuring cup. You need about 2c pumpkin to make the pie. You’ll probably get right around 2c pumpkin from one whole butternut squash. We don’t have ‘Cool Whip’ in Australia but you can buy cans of Reddi / Dream Whip in the shopping market. Enjoy with friends and family!

After steaming my fish with Nori in the bamboo steamer (see previous photo), I put the fish and nori into the pot with steaming water, turned up the heat and added vegetable stock powder, seasonings such as garlic, ginger, salt, pepper, sesame oil, a pinch of soy sauce, sesame oil and sriracha followed with chopped up veggies (frozen Asian vegetables and small bits of fresh cauliflower). Because I really like them I tossed in 3 prawn hargow (dumplings). When the veggies and hargow were cooked I tossed a packet of ramen noodles in and waited a few minutes before declaring my soup as finished.  How can something so easy turn out tasting so nice?? Try it sometime with your protein of choice. (Steamed or otherwise). Rod’s rule was ‘Fish & Chips on Fridays’. Well I’m still having fish & chips, but every other Friday I’m making this.  And it’s probably going to be different every time I make it.

Instagram post 2218899845966930544_507303 10Jan20 A couple weeks ago I read that you can use Nori (the seaweed ‘paper’ that’s wrapped around sushi) in a bamboo steamer as opposed to using foil and cutting little holes in it then throwing it away when done.  So I thought I’d give it a try for steaming my fish.  The house had a lovely seaweed smell while the fish cooked and when finished, the nori was crinkled up to the fish. I scooped both up and put them in the pan with the hot water I’d used for steaming then added the rest of the ingredients to make my ramen soup.  #cookingforone #cooking #hokifish #nori #steamedhoki #ramensoup #ramensoupforthesoul

Lots of cucumber (actually more than pictured because I went back for more). Two chicken burgers with burger sauce on them, and steamed fresh cauliflower in an olive spread container (it still had spread in it that I thought would be nice with it and it worked a treat. I sprinkled dry ranch dressing powder I bought in the states on it (less than a teaspoon) for a bit of oomph.  #cookingforone #cooking #2020pad #cucumber #chickenburgers #cauliflower

Prawns, smoked salmon, and high fibre pasta topped with some Parmesan cheese and a dash of chopped green onions.  #newyeardinner  #cookingforone #cooking #2020pad #prawns #highfibre #highprotein #smokedsalmon
