Fruity Bundt Cake
I changed ingredients as follows: reduced sugar to 1 1/2 cups, reduced oil to 1/2 cup, added 1 1/4 c low-fat vanilla yogurt. I omitted the nuts and pineapple as we had company that was allergic. It still was moist! Definitely only bake it one hour - no more. I served crushed strawberries over and squirted a little bit of Reddi-Whip. Looked decadent, but was much lower in calories than the original recipe. The coconut gave it the powdered sugar "look" and sweet taste. Everyone loved it!

The best wintertime meals need a long, slow simmer while you're doing something else.
