I have had a busy weekend working, working out, baking, chopping, and unfortunately eating WAY too much!
Friday I received an email from Hungry Girl about changing up boxed cake mix and substituting a variety of different elements in place of the oil and eggs (http://www.hungry-girl.com/girls/biteoutdetails.php?isid=2126). So far I have only had an opportunity to experiment once–yellow cake mix and applesauce! I honestly think this combination is better than actually using the eggs and oil. The cake was incredibly moist and tasty.
In order to create the cake/cupcakes using applesauce, combine 1 cup water + 1 cup applesauce + cake mix. Follow the baking directions given on the box.
I’m hoping to do devil’s food cake and greek yogurt tomorrow.
In addition to baking these delicious treats, I also had to make a fruit tray for my mom’s birthday party.
I wanted to make a dip as well and found a REALLY easy recipe that is super easy and very low in calories. All you need is a light cool whip and fat free yogurt! My mom requested blueberry, but I think it would be really good if you used some of the creative flavors that are available. I am also considering using this as an icing for the cupcakes.
Hopefully I will be doing the other cake/cupcakes tomorrow and will have pictures and a review for that later in the week!
