If you’ve ever done Weight Watchers, you’ve probably learned the super-easy, low-fat cake recipe. If you haven’t, I’ll let you in on the secret. You can make a tasty, low-fat, super-easy cake or brownies by mixing one box of cake mix (any flavor) or one box of brownie mix with 8-10 ounces of diet soda — usually Diet Coke for dark cakes or Diet Sprite for lighter cakes.
Another low-fat variation, though, has become a favorite with friends and family…and nobody cares that it’s low-fat. It’s the pineapple angel food cake and it’s incredibly simple. You just mix together this:
Yep, it’s that simple. An angel food cake mix and a can of crushed pineapple (in juice, not heavy syrup). Just mix them together and bake at 350 degrees for 20-30 minutes. It’s really good served with some low-fat Cool-Whip on top.
Do you have any simple, low-fat desert recipes? If you do, I’d love to hear them. I’m responsible for desert at my sister’s house each week.
