Taking the Cake

I heard about this at a WW meeting and wanted to try it out. It's a yellow cake mix and instead of adding the eggs, oil, etc. add a can of diet Sprite (or the Walmart version--Twist Up) and bake as normal. It sounds awful but I tried it last night and it turned out to be really good. And the best part it's only 4 points for a reasonable piece. I frosted it with fat free cool whip.

And I hear that if you want to make a chocolate cake to use a can of diet Dr. Pepper.

I may be the last person that's heard of this but I wanted to share it, just in case you are looking for a way to have your cake and eat it too. :)

I ALWAYS make cake with soda. It s sooo much better for you.

Funny saying that, isn't it?

This makes me very curious and now I MUST try this. Thanks for the tip!

Must mention the other WW crazy classics:
1 can of pumpkin with 1 box of spice cake mix or carrot cake mix
12 muffins - 2 points each

1 can of black beans (blenderized into gunk) and 1 box chocolate cake mix
12 muffins - 2 points each

Tried the pumpkin before, it's not bad at all, but it gets a little gummy at the finish. Still worth it though!

good to know! Not only for the health reasons, but I'm notorious for starting a cake and not having enough eggs! I have to say though, Cristina's suggestion of black beans and chocolate cake just doesn't sound that appetizing.

That is phenomenal. Can you use diet coke? I'm always looking for another way to incorporate the DC into my diet...
