New Years Weight Resolution Cakes

Updated on January 1, 2011

I’m writing off topic today just because it’s New Years and I want to share these delicious versions of lower calorie cakes for those of you who made weight loss resolutions for 2011. (This isn’t one my resolutions this year, but was a couple years ago. I dropped 35 lbs and ate this cake while doing it.)

These are not my recipes, but ones I gathered from co-workers and also from Hungry I have no idea what the calorie count or fat content is, but without oil, eggs or frosting – you’ve got to be saving hundreds of calories per piece.

Coke Cake

  • Box of chocolate cake mix – any kind
  • Can of Diet Coke

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix the can of diet Coke with the chocolate cake mix with a mixer until totally mixed, about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour into a 13 x 9 baking pan and pop it into the oven for about 20 minutes or so…depending on your oven.

That’s it! I add a little Reddi-Wip on top which is only 15 calories per 2 tablespoons.

7-Up Cake

Mix a can of diet 7-Up with white cake mix and follow the Coke Cake instructions. Other variations you could try are diet 7-Up or cream soda with yellow cake mix.

Brownie Cake Muffins

  • Box of devil food cake
  • 15oz can of solid pack pumpkin (adds fiber!)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Mix cake mix with pumpkin using a mixer until well incorporated. Scoop mixture (it’ll be really thick) into muffin tins lined with paper, or sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for 20 minutes or so. This should make about 12 muffins. (You can call them cupcakes if you want)

Be creative and try making your own combos of cake mix plus some other ingredient. I’ve read of black beans being added to chocolate cake mix – um... no thanks :-)

      Very interesting. The brownie cake muffin recipe sounds the most yummy to me, but the other ones sound pretty good, too. Oh what the heck, I'll just try them all! :)

      I have tried the Coke Cake, which is great, but not the other recipes. I will definitely need to try them out.
