I don’t know about you, but around this time of the year, the ol' denim jumpsuit starts getting a little tight. I suppose I could blame the panzerottis or the leftover fruitcake or the box of Pot of Gold I consumed the other night during a Golden Girls marathon. But I prefer to think it’s my body’s way of saying, “You need to keep warm.” And why fight nature?
Having said that, it’s always good to cut back a little. So when Caker Cooking reader, Cheryl, sent me this recipe that her cousin posted on Facebook, I figured the timing couldn’t be better. A low-calorie treat that tastes delicious? Colour me Jenny Craig.
Admittedly, it’s a little weird to be pouring Diet 7-Up over cake mix, but keep in mind where you’re reading this recipe. Besides, it’s DIET 7-Up, people! As to how it tasted, well, I ate the whole pan. Guess it's time to start wrapping myself in Saran Wrap.
Two 12-oz bags frozen mixed berries (See note)
1 box white cake mix (no pudding)
1 can of diet 7-up or sierra mist (clear soda)
Place frozen fruit in a 9x13 baking dish. Add dry cake mix over the top. Pour soda slowly over cake mix. DO NOT stir the cake mix and the pop - this will give you a “crust.” If you stir the two, you will have a cake-like topping.
Bake 350 for 45-50 min.
