The Most Divine Low-Fat Cake in the World

Contributed by Rachel Nielson

My friend, Laney Hawes, has made this cake for me twice, and I can't get over how delicious it is.  She got it out of a Weight Watchers cookbook--WEIGHT WATCHERS???!!!  This cake is so good that I would pick it even if it weren't low-fat.  It is soooooooooo yummy,

1 box of cake mix (any flavor you want works, I use white for the one I make)
2 1/2 cups of diet soda (I used 7-up)
3 egg whites

The cake mix seems really runny, but it bakes up really nicely. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes or until its done. Don't over cook it. 

1 small container of fat free cool whip
1 small box of sugar free pudding mix or sugar free jello (I use pistachio)
1 cup of diet soda (I used 7-up again)

Mix it all together and spread over the cake. I found that if I let the cool whip get to room temp and mix it with the pudding mix,  it dissolves better than if the cool whip is really cold. Then I add the 7-up. And the cake is best if it is left in the fridge for a few hours or even over night.

RW---7Up or Diet 7Up?

I hate to leave a negative comment, but I thought this cake was weird. It was way too eggy. Maybe I did something wrong, but there were random bites of pure egg whites. And I had to use chocolate pudding instead of pistachio, but all I could taste was the diet 7-up.

Hmm...I've never noticed bits of egg white. Maybe you should try it again.

I think chocolate pudding would be weird with it. It's the pistachio that I love. I wonder what Sarah thought of the cake.

Laura is allergic to pistachio. I want to try it with root beer too. I liked it but Logan thought it was too wet. We took it to a BBQ and people said they liked it. The final verdict was: we liked it, but it sat in our fridge and didn't get devoured immediately. But, if it's a WW cake, then it's pretty great, considering.

What's the point makeup on this cake, RW, do you know? I want to try it with root beer and vanilla.

I don't know the exact point makeup, but you could figure it out with your recipe builder, right?
