Ingredients

all-purpose flour

¾ cup(s)

whole wheat flour

¼ cup(s)

sugar

cup(s)

baking soda

½ tsp

baking powder

1½ tsp

table salt

¼ tsp

ground cinnamon

¼ tsp

egg(s)

1 large, beaten

Plain fat free yogurt

½ cup(s)

canola oil

2 Tbsp

vanilla extract

½ tsp

fresh blueberries

1 cup(s)

cooking spray

2 spray(s)

powdered sugar

1 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Combine both flours, sugar, baking soda, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Combine egg, yogurt, oil and vanilla extract in a small bowl; stir well. Beat egg mixture into flour mixture with a wooden spoon until smooth; stir in blueberries.
  2. Coat a 2-quart round soufflé dish with cooking spray; spoon batter into dish. Coat a sheet of aluminum foil with cooking spray; cover dish tightly with foil, coated side-down, so no water seeps in.
  3. Pour 2 cups of hot water into a 5-quart or larger slow cooker; place covered baking dish in slow cooker. Cover slow cooker; cook on HIGH for 3 to 4 hours. Remove baking dish and cool on wire rack for 5 minutes. Turn cake upside down onto a wire rack to cool completely. Dust with powdered sugar before slicing into 8 pieces. Yields 1 slice per serving.
Notes
You can substitute fresh or frozen and thawed raspberries or chopped strawberries for the blueberries, if desired. You can also switch to a berry-flavored fat-free yogurt.
