Low-fat Snowball Cake


How's the diet going??? You can have your cake and eat it too!!  This recipe is one of the best lower calorie cakes I've ever made.  I don't claim that it's homemade or gourmet, but it tastes so good.  It's so easy and no one would ever guess that you left out the fattening ingredients.  This is one of the recipes that gets passed around at Weight Watcher meetings and is on the diet recipe threads.  You can adapt this recipe by using a chocolate mix and diet coke or even spice cake with pumpkin.  You can experiment with different ingredients to create something that is a little healther than just cake.  Enjoy, but watch your potions.

1 pkg white cake mix
1 - 12 oz diet Sprite or 7up
1 cup water
1 cup Splenda
1 small tub cool whip
coconut (optional)

Mix together the cake mix and diet Sprite.  Mix on low to blend and then mix on medium for 2 minutes.  Spray a 9 x 13 inch baking pan with Bakers Joy or grease and flour pan.  Pour mixture in pan and spread out evenly.  Bake for about 25 minutes, watching closely not to overbake.  Let cool. 

 In a small saucepan mix 1 cup water and 1 cup Splenda and bring to a boil.  Pour this evenly over cake.  When cake is totally cool frost with cool whip.  Add coconut or chopped nuts as desired.
