I'm not sure where this recipe originated, but it is a family favorite. Don't let the "healthy name" keep you from trying it -- it's delicious...and it freezes well, too! We like it with cream cheese frosting or a light dusting of powdered sugar. I haven't timed this exactly, so the prep and cooking times are approximate.
