This is an easy and stylish dessert that's sure to please everyone. Best served warm, the holiday treat is delicious with a scoop of light vanilla ice cream or reduced-fat whipped topping on the side. —Leah Beatty of Cobourg, Ontario

This was too easy - yet very elegant. I used butter flavored spray for richer taste. I sprinkled candied ginger over top before service. Especially good with lowfat Ice Cream
