Add as the middle layer of cake for a filling like I did.

Or you can use it as icing on top of the cake. It’s up to you 🙂

Hope you enjoy!

Well, my birthday was coming up so I figured I’d give it a try!

I had my doubts, but it actually turned out pretty good and tasted like normal cake, if not better-WITH NEARLY HALF THE CALORIES/FAT!

For one serving of cake: 180 Calories!!! (Normal way is 280 Calories)

WHAT YOU NEED:
-1 Box Devil’s Food cake mix
-1 Container fat free greek yogurt
-1 Cup water

Instead of following the box instructions, simply mix all of the above ingredients together (no oil or eggs). It will be a very thick batter, and nothing like a normal cake batter.

It almost has the consistency of mouse.  Just make sure you mix very well. Then transfer to your cake pan. You MUST  spread this with a spatula or spoon and sort of pat it down into the dish. It WILL NOT spread on its own, even while being baked…SO SPREAD!

Follow the baking instructions and WALA-Your cake is ready!
