1/4 cup margarine, softened
5 teaspoons Equal® for RecipiesTM or 16 packets Equal® sweetener or 2/3 cups Equal® SpoonfulTM
2 Tablespoons strawberry spreadable fruit
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 cup skim milk
1 cup self-rising flour
1 medium Granny Smith apple
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon Equal® for RecipiesTM or 1 packets Equal® sweetener or 2 teaspoons Equal® SpoonfulTM
Beat margarine, Equal®, and spreadable fruit together until combined and creamy. Mix together the egg, vanilla and milk. Add to the margarine mixture alternately with the self-rising flour. (The mixture will be thick.)
Spoon mixture into a greased and parchment lined 8-inch round cake pan. Peel and core apple; cut into slices. Dip slices into lemon juice. Place decoratively on top of cake mixture.
Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 30 minutes, or until toothpick comes out clean.
Turn out onto a towel; peel off parchment. Invert onto a wire rack with apple on top. Sprinkle with cinnamon and additional Equal while cake is still warm.
