I have been bad at taking pictures of the foods that have come out of my “test kitchen” lately, mainly because I forget to check my batteries, and some of my readers/critics have been on me about it 🙂 I promise even though I don’t have a picture of this cake I will get a picture up really soon. I actually have to make yet another cake for this weekend. I’m meeting up with some high school friends who I have not seen in………well let’s just say quite a few years!
This pound cake is so moist and delicious, you will not believe that it’s extremely low fat! Another plus side of this cake is the wide variety of flavors you can make as long as you watch the fat content on the cake and pudding mix. Since I’ve been in Florida for the last couple of weeks, I have been craving citrus flavors so I made an orange flavor and a lemon flavor but as you read the recipe your imagination will kick in and the cake possibilities are endless! Enjoy and don’t forget to send me your comments/questions firstname.lastname@example.org
Pound Cake With Flavor
1 pkg. of white cake mix (be sure to check the fat content so that you find one only with about 1-1.5 grams per serving)
1 pkg. of instant no fat pudding (flavor depends on what flavor you want cake to be – I choose vanilla for one and lemon for the other)
3/4 cup egg beaters
3/4 cup no fat yogurt (can use flavored yogurt depending on your cake/pudding flavor)
1 can of soda (orange is what I used for my orange flavor and mountain dew for my lemon – diet soda)
zest of a lemon/orange if you choose to make a citrus flavored cake
In a large bowl combine the cake mix, pudding mix, egg beaters, yogurt and soda. Mix on low for about 2 min until cake batter is smooth.
Pour batter into a 10″ tube pan that has been sprayed with Pam and sprinkled with flour. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min. Remember every oven is different so time will vary with ovens. Cool 10 minutes in pan before you remove the cake from the pan and put on wire rack to continue cooling.
Note: You can dust with powdered sugar or you can make a powdered sugar glaze but the cake is really great by itself and needs nothing more than people to help you eat it 🙂
You can make this pound cake in chocolate but it will not be quite as low in fat. Use the lowest fat content cake mix you can find and a no fat pudding mix. For you soda flavor you can use cherry soda or a diet coke with lime. The varieties are endless 🙂
