That's right, not a typo. I believe it was the smart folks at Weight Watchers who figured out you can make any box cake low in points, simply by replacing the oil and eggs with diet soda. Sounds strange and I have always been curious about this. Today I decided to give it a shot.
I used Stewart's Diet Cream Soda with a Betty Crocker Super Moist Cake Mix. I also used two egg whites to make the cake fluffier. Wow, what a delicious low fat, low point cake. I topped mine with some fat free whipped cream. Here's the recipe. Making cupcakes is probably your best option for better portion control and lower points. Keep in mind, 2 cupcakes would be 5 points. Points might vary depending on the brand of cake mix.
