Let them...Eat Cake!!

       Yes, most people love sweets, and of course i'm one of those many many people, so today i'm going to give you an easy boxed cake recipe that you can use and eat GUILT FREE ( Just Remember  Moderation).

1st pick out any Betty Crocker super moist cake mix
2nd pre-heat the oven according to the box
3rd get all you supplies ready such as any flavor of the 6oz. Yoplait non-fat yogurt there mainly 100-110calories each, 6 large eggs, and water.
4th seperate the egg whites from the egg yolks. Heres an instructional video to show you how to separate the egg whites from the yolks, click the link: 
now put all the 6 egg whites in the mixing bowl, you can either save the yolks or throw them away I don't use them in this recipe
5th put all of the yogurt into the mixing bowl
6th put the directed amount of water that is on the box in the mixing bowl
7th Now take the cake mix from the box into the mixing bowl and mix all together once the batter is smooth pour into a baking pan sprayed with cooking oil. 
8th Put in pre-heated oven for desired time on the cake box.

Remember: not to much cooking spray even though it says 0Calories it's still oil! The reason it says that the cooking spray is only 0Calories is the serving size in 1/3 second spray so that is to small to have calories but if you keep spraying it adds up. So make sure you don't use a ton on just one pan, Remember: MODERATION 

Cake with substitutions :177calories per piece
Cake without substitutions: 240calories per piece
                                    Difference:63calories per piece

Pudding instead of Frosting
Normally when you make cake you have the frosting right on top, instead I use JELLO instant pudding and I have no substitution for this because the only ingredient to add in is milk.

This is the calories for 1TBS of pudding that is made with different milk.
Calories For Pudding 
1TBS w/ skim milk:22.16 calories
1TBS w/ 1% milk:23.5 calories
1TBS w/ 2% milk:25.0
1TBS w/ whole milk:27.1
