An Easy Recipe

So the other day I told you all about my love of baking.

Well I had the opportunity to bake some more this week because B's mother had a birthday on Tuesday.

I wasn't sure what to make but I knew that I wanted to make something easy and quick but was still good. Plus I know she is watching her weight so I wanted to make it healthy.

A long time ago when I first started at Weight Watchers someone gave a recipe to use cake mix and diet soda. I never tried it before nor did I get the exact recipe at the time. Well I remembered the recipe the other day and so I did a search on it and it is so freakin' simple I could hug whoever thought this genius up.

Ok so here is the recipe. Are you ready for it?:
1 Box of Cake Mix
1 Can of Diet Pepsi or Diet Coke or any other diet soda

Mix together. Do not add anything else and put it in a cake mold or cupcakes or whatever and wala you have a cake! So easy!

I will tell you that if you are using a chocolate cake mix use a dark soda as the mix and if you are using a white cake mix use something like Diet 7Up or Diet Sprite.

This was unbelievably easy.

I made 24 cupcakes with mine but you can do whatever. I topped it off with Funfetti Icing and figured out the points for the little slice of heaven. Wanna guess how many points with Funfetti Icing? Points came out to be 3!! You got that 3! That is pretty awesome considering a regular recipe of cake mix and icing would be somewhere around 5 or 6 depending on certain things.

and the best part....IT TASTES SO GOOD. PROBABLY EVEN BETTER THAN USING ALL THE INGREDIENTS IN IT.

Definitely going to use this recipe more now. I know its not ideal since I love making things from scratch but if you are in a hurry I would try this little number out!
