Dieting? Yes, You Can Have Your Cake & Eat It Too!
See the chocolate cake below? It's called, "I Want To Kill Your Diet Cake" and is a definite no-no when it comes to weight loss.
The main killer ingredient is of course, the frosting. Yeah, I know - it's the best part, but what is really best: eating cake frosting OR being proud of your weight?
But take heart because creating a cake that is a Diet Masterpiece is ultra easy and takes only a jiffy second.
You'll cut tons of calories by simply omitting the frosting and dusting your finished cake masterpiece with powdered sugar or cocoa powder AND by substituting the healthier ingredients listed in our 'Weight Loss Tips for Cakes' chart below for the higher calorie ingredients.
Thin Thin's Low Calorie Recipe for Dynamite Chocolate Butter Cake
You will need:1 box of chocolate cake mix
2 whole eggs
2 Tablespoons of butter or margarine
3/4 cup of cool water
Pour mix into a deep mixing bowl. Add the eggs and the melted butter which has been brought to room temperature after the melting process (or you'll cook your eggs!). Next, add the water and mix for about 2 minutes - or until batter is smooth.
You can use traditional cake pans, but to ensure the most accurate calorie content, we suggest making cupcakes OR a single-layer cake using a spring-form pan. Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven until cake is done.
Dust with powdered sugar after cake has thoroughly cooled (or your sugar will melt). 1/10th of the recipe contains about 250 calories, but take note that these calories will vary depending upon which brand of cake mix is used.
