  • Portion size 8 servings
  • Credits : SPLENDA®

Ingredients

  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup Splenda® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter cold or frozen
  • 1/2 cup frozen cranberries halved
  • 1 cup low fat buttermilk
  • 1 1/2 tablespoon low fat buttermilk
  • 2 tablespoons Splenda® No Calorie Sweetener, Granular
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Method

Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C)

Prepare a baking sheet with baking spray or line it with parchment paper.

Combine the whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, 1/2 cup (125 mL) SPLENDA® Granulated, baking powder, 1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) of cinnamon, salt, cloves and nutmeg together in a mixing bowl.

Grate the butter into the dry mixture with a coarse size grater. Stop at intervals to lightly toss the butter particles into the flour mixture to keep the butter from lumping together.

Add the cranberries and toss into mixture.

Mix in the buttermilk until the dough is just starting to combine.  Turn out onto the countertop and knead until the dough just comes together and forms a smooth ball.  DO NOT OVERMIX.

Lightly flour the surface of the dough and gently press into a flat round disc approximately 3/4” (2 cm) thick.  Transfer the dough to the prepared baking sheet.

Brush the 1 1/2 tbsp (23 mL) of buttermilk over the surface of the dough

Mix the 2 tbsp (30 mL) of SPLENDA® Granulated with the 1/2 tsp (2 mL) of cinnamon and evenly sprinkle the mix over the surface of the dough.

Cut the dough into 8 equal pie-shaped sections, but do not separate them.  Keep the disc in one large circle. This will help support the sides of each portion as they rise in the oven.  

Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.

Cut the sections to separate and serve immediately with butter, if desired.
