Ingredients

  • 1 jar (10 ounces) apricot spreadable fruit
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 1/3 cup sugar
  • 4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • CAKE:
  • 3-1/4 cups reduced-fat biscuit/baking mix
  • Sugar substitute equivalent to 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cardamom
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup fat-free milk
  • 2/3 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter, melted

Directions

  • 1. Place 3 tablespoons spreadable fruit in a small microwave-safe bowl; cover and refrigerate. In another bowl, combine the pecans, sugar substitute, cinnamon and remaining spreadable fruit; set aside.
  • 2. For cake, in a large bowl, combine the biscuit mix, sugar substitute and cardamom. Combine the eggs, milk, sour cream and butter; stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 3. Spread a third of the batter into a 10-in. fluted tube pan coated with cooking spray. Spread with half of the pecan mixture. Repeat layers. Top with remaining batter.
  • 4. Bake at 350° for 40-45 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 15 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack. In a microwave, warm the reserved spreadable fruit; brush over warm cake. Cool completely. Yield: 16 servings.
