Marilu Henner, internationally acclaimed actress, author of seven successful healthy lifestyle and cookery books and the founder of Total Health Makeover (a complete, easy-to-follow life plan that will change the way you look and feel, inside and out) is a devoted advocate of Wholesome!Organic Sucanat.
Sucanat (Sugar Cane Natural) retains the taste and nutrients of sugar cane and is produced without the use of any herbicides, pesticides or chemicals. Sucanat is simply whole cane juice that has been rapidly evaporated and hand-paddled to create a dry, porous, free-flowing organic brown sugar. Sucanat contains 13% molasses and 87% sucrose so it is slightlylower on the glycemic index than regular sugar.
Marilu has been using the gloriously rich Sucanat, which she calls a "legal sugar" for 20 years and it stars in all seven of her recipe books. Marilu's fanstastic brownie recipe from her book PARTY HEARTY, is a must-try and easy to follow recipe.
Marilu traveled to Costa Rica with her co-author and brother, Lorin Henner, and a group of like-minded food enthusiasts to witness first-hand how the Organic Sucanat is produced and to understand why it is fabled as "the World's Healthiest Sugar".
In 2006, Marilu served as the master of ceremonies for Wholesome!' Distinguished Women in Wine Luncheon at Fort Bend County's The Grand Wine and Food Affair.
Passover Puff Biscuits
- Preheat the oven to 375°F.
- In a medium saucepan, combine the 1 cup water, the oil, Organic Sucanat and salt and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Remove the mixture from the pan and transfer to a large mixing bowl.
- Stir in the matzo meal. Stir in the egg, then the whites 2 at a time, beating until the mixture is smooth before adding more whites.
- Using two spoons, form the dough into 2-inch balls. Arrange the balls on a lightly greased baking sheet, keeping 3 inches between each. Using a fork dipped in water, smooth the tops of the rolls. Bake the rolls until puffed and golden brown, about 40 to 50 minutes.
