Ingredients

1 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup melted shortening
2/3 cup skim milk
1 egg, lightly beaten
3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
8 packets Sweet ‘N Low® zero calorie sweetener
1 cup minced apples (about 2 medium)

Directions

Sift flour, Sweet ‘N Low, baking powder, salt, and spices into mixing bowl. Combine egg, milk, and shortening; add to dry ingredients; blend until flour is moistened. Do not overmix; batter should be lumpy. Fold in minced apples.
