Light & Easy Chocolate Cake
INGREDIENTS
  • Preparation Time: 10 minutes
  • 1 box Chocolate Cake Mix (I usually try to use a "moist" labeled chocolate mix)
  • 2 egg whites
  • 1 can Diet Coke
  • 1 tub Cool Whip
  • Vanilla extract - to taste
DIRECTIONS
  1. Mix cake mix with egg whites & diet coke
  2. Follow cooking directions on the cake mix box - I have made this in both muffin tins for cupcakes (which is good for portion control) & as a whole cake
  3. Mix Cool Whip with approximately 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or to taste) - I haven't measured the extract....I just eye ball it
  4. When the cake/cupcakes are cooled top with the Cool Whip
  5. Enjoy!!
RECIPE BACKSTORY
I got this recipe from a Weight Watchers meeting I was attending & made it for both Thanksgiving & Christmas Eve dinners (as well as some other times), it was enjoyed at both occassions. The cake has a nice chocolate flavor, but isn't too heavy after such big meals. Instead of using the oil or whole eggs in the batter, this recipe uses a can of soda & egg whites - it may sound odd (as it did with my dad), but it tastes very good.
