Diet Coke Cake, myth, or reality?

Ahh, the fabled Diet Coke Cake. Does it exist? Can you perfect it? Of course you can. This fabled Weight Watcher's cake is, well, cake to make.

First, purchase a boxed cake mix. Chocolate and fudge are the perfect cakes for this recipe, but if you prefer white or something else, diet 7up is better to use than diet coke.

Here's where the confusion begins. You see, on the back of the box of cake mix are all these little instructions. I only want you to read the temperature in which to preheat the oven, and how long to leave your cake in for. Don't read the rest.

Now, get yourself a big bowl, dump the cake mix in, add the can of soda, and voila! You get cake without all the fat and calories that come with eggs, oil, and whatever other ridiculous ingredients they would have you put in there.

Pour the mixture into greased cake pans, and put them in your oven. Set the timer for the specified time for the size of pans you are using, and use a toothpick to make sure it's done when your timer goes off. If the toothpick comes out with cake mix on it, the cake is not done, and should be cooked until the toothpick comes out clean.

For delicious frosting, in another bowl, mix one part fat free cool whip and one part sugar free pudding mix. Add a wee bit of skim milk, and there you have a nice low fat, low calorie frosting to slather your cake in.

Happy eating!

      I believe avoiding prepared foods is the first step so that you can lose weight. They might taste good, but prepared foods have very little nutritional value, making you feed on more in order to have enough energy to get throughout the day. For anyone who is constantly consuming these foods, converting to cereals and other complex carbohydrates will aid you to have more vitality while having less. Thanks alot : ) for your blog post.

      Thanks for the input, I know it's not good for you, but tons of people requested the recipe when I was in Weight Watchers, so I put it up. There are still some of us that quit smoking, eating out, and started exersising that aren't quite ready to give up our last vice-diet coke.

      Happy eating!!
