1 3⁄4 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
3⁄4 tsp salt
1⁄2 cup (1 stick) light butter
1 1⁄4 cups Splenda granulated
3/4 cup fat-free egg substitute
1 cup canned pureed pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1⁄3 cup fat-free milk

2⁄3 cup plus 2 TBSP quick oats
1⁄2 cup all-purpose flour
1⁄2 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

Turn the cake out onto a rack and cool completely.
MY SPIN: The recipe I got on Facebook called for this to be made in a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan and to bake for 55 minutes. I like to 'find' the original recipe so I can see if there are any remarks/comments.....and there were. One person made it in the loaf pan and said that after 55 minutes, the center was still 'mushy'. The person who posted the recipe then said that she made this in the 9x9-inch baking pan but didn't say how long to bake it. I baked mine for @45 minutes. Angie and Chrissy thought it was good! The topping is more 'crunchy' than 'crumby' and very tasty. The original recipe also called for 3/4 cup chopped walnuts as an option......I used 1/4 cup because I didn't want the taste of the nuts to overpower the pumpkin. If I ever make this again, I won't use any nuts.....it won't change the PointsPlus™ value if I use 1/4 cup or not. And.....I forgot to use the parchment paper which made it a little 'messy' and more work getting the cake out of the pan. Ugh!!!
|It was yummy!!!|
