“During my engagement I read an article in a bridal magazine in which a nutritionist/psychiatrist was asked, what is the easiest way for a woman to lose a large amount of weight? Her reply was, "Get Engaged". I had to laugh, I was running on the treadmill at the time in preparation for the big day in my white dress. Over the course of 11 months, I lost 20 pounds, gained a ton of self confidence and learned to eat healthy and excersize. However, it took some major dietary changes and I learned to take my uber-fattening favorites and make them healthier and still yummy :) I put these recipes in a book and I called it the Skinny Bride's Guide. But this was by far my favorite! It was my grandmother's recipe that I altered. NOTE: This will not rise like a normal cake! It is very moist and very dense. Put it in a muffin tin or a bundt pan. 9" rounds won't work, or you will end up with the world's thinnest cake! For a spluge I mix up a glaze of powdered sugar and skim milk.”
