Berry Pudding Cake - No Sugar Added

 
 
 
No Sugar - Berry Pudding Cake
 
This is a variation of a delicious recipe that I stumbled upon while visiting Better Homes & Gardens´s site at  http://www.bhg.com/recipe/berry-pudding-cakes/?socsrc=bhgpin052912    today afternoon... so easy and quick to make.
 
The original recipe has sugar, but I used Stevia in powder form to save calories.
I omitted the sugar because I added melted chocolate for the toppings. Chocolate bars are one of my weaknesses, so if I would have used sugar, then  calories would have been much more.
  

 
Here´s BGH´s  orignal recipe of the scrumptious Berry Pudding Cake...
 

Ingredients
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar   ( I used Stevia instead of sugar with a Ratio of 1:1 )
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 3 cups fresh berries (such as raspberries, blueberries, and/or sliced strawberries)
  • 2 teaspoons powdered sugar (optional)
Directions
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly coat six 6-ounce individual quiche dishes with nonstick cooking spray. Arrange in a 15x10x1-inch baking pan; set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, granulated sugar, vanilla, and salt; whisk until light and frothy. Whisk in milk until combined. Add flour and baking powder; whisk until smooth.
2. Divide berries among prepared quiche dishes. Pour batter over berries. (Batter will not cover berries completely.) Bake about 20 minutes or until puffed and golden brown. Serve warm. If desired, sift powdered sugar over each serving.

                                  
 

 
 
Note:
 
I used various frozen berries such as blueberries,  blackberries, red currant and raspberries ...I thawed them beforehand placing  them in a colander to extract the liquid before putting them in the baking form. 
 
When baking was finished,  I added melted chocolate as topping:
 
To make the melted chocolate:
 
 in a pot, heat 3 tbsp milk + 50 grams of plain chocolate bar  ( 1/2 of the small bar)under low fire, mix  til the chocolate is melted and well blended.  Use spoon to add droplets onto the Pudding cake.
 
Depending on the berries you have,  eat this with a spoon as the cake is soft and juicy.
