Hmm. Looks like these ingredients aren't on sale today


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • ½ cup yellow cornmeal
  • ⅓ cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons sugar or sugar substitute (see Tips)
  • 1½ teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon baking soda
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ⅔ cup buttermilk or sour milk (see Tips)
  • ⅔ cup shredded cored red cooking apple (such as Gala or Jonathan)
  • 2 egg whites, lightly beaten, or ¼ cup refrigerated or frozen egg product, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped dried figs (about 5 figs)
  • 1 red cooking apple (such as Gala or Jonathan)
  • ⅔ cup apple juice or apple cider


  • Prep 20 m
  • Ready In 35 m

Preheat oven to 400°F. Lightly coat six 3¼- to 3½-inch muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.

In a large bowl, combine cornmeal, flour, sugar, lemon peel, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine buttermilk, shredded apple, egg whites, and figs. Add apple mixture all at once to cornmeal mixture. Stir just until moistened. Set aside.
Core whole apple. Cut whole apple horizontally into six rings, each about ¼ inch thick. Place one ring in each muffin cup, cutting slices to fit if necessary. Spoon cornmeal batter evenly into muffin cups atop apple slices, filling each about half full.

Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until tops are golden brown and a toothpick inserted into tops of cakes comes out clean.

Meanwhile, in a small saucepan, bring apple juice to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 7 to 9 minutes or until reduced to ⅓ cup.

Let cakes cool in muffin cups on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Run a thin metal spatula around edges of cakes to loosen from sides of muffin cups. Invert pan onto a baking sheet or rectangular tray lined with foil; remove pan. While hot, slowly drizzle cakes with apple juice reduction. Transfer to a serving platter. Serve warm.
Tips: To make ⅔ cup sour milk, place 2 teaspoons lemon juice or vinegar in a glass measuring cup. Add enough fat-free milk to make ⅔ cup total liquid; stir. Let mixture stand for 5 minutes before using.

Sugar Substitutes: Choose from Splenda® Granular, Equal® Spoonful or packets, or Sweet 'N Low® Bulk or packets. Follow package directions to use product amount equivalent to 2 tablespoons sugar. PER SERVING WITH SUBSTITUTE: same as below, except 124 cal., 27 g carbo.
