Note from the Diva
Vanilla yogurt is spooned over this peach-topped shortcake.

List of Ingredients
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon sugar
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 cup margarine
1 slightly beaten egg white
1/4 cup skim milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla

Nonstick spray coating

3 medium peaches, peeled, pitted, and sliced, or one 16-ounce can peach slices (juice pack), drained

1/2 cup vanilla low-fat yogurt

Preparation
1. In a medium mixing bowl stir together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon. Cut in margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in center. Combine egg white, milk, and vanilla; add all at once to flour mixture. Stir until dough clings together.
2. Lightly coat a 9-inch pie plate with nonstick spray coating. With floured fingers, press batter evenly into pie plate. Bake in a 350 degree F. oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until golden. Cool slightly.
3. Meanwhile, chop 2 peach slices and stir into the yogurt. Arrange remaining peach slices over top of shortcake. Spoon yogurt mixture over all. Serve warm.

Hi Stormy,
Thank you for your interest in this recipe. I would give it a 1 star if I hadn't tried it or I might give it 5 stars if I intended to use it. Whatever rating I gave it, I would explain why I gave it the rating I did.

Removing the yolk etc is to make it lower fat.

I usually make a recipe exactly as I find it . . . first. Then go from there and make it my own. If I make a fattier version, I just eat less. It doesnt hurt. Obviously, ginger is a nice idea as it complements the peaches. Almonds and almond flavoring always complements peaches.

When you read a recipe, you already think of some changes that you would make to suit you and go ahead and make them immediately.

Arlene, This recipe has caught my interest. Honestly, I appreciate recipes that have had a good bit of the fat & excess sugar removed, but I also want a wholesome tasty dessert that is worthy of my fresh peaches. Is the purpose of the egg white and the use of the skim milk to make this a healthier dessert, or does it have to do with the color and texture of the cake?

How would this turn out if I used butter, a whole egg, low fat buttermilk and greek yogurt? Do questions like this annoy you? I'm thinking of adding a touch of ginger too.
