Why I Love This Recipe

I got this recipe from a Weight Watchers meeting I was attending & made it for both Thanksgiving & Christmas Eve dinners (as well as some other times), it was enjoyed at both occassions. The cake has a nice chocolate flavor, but isn't too heavy after such big meals.

Instead of using the oil or whole eggs in the batter, this recipe uses a can of soda & egg whites - it may sound odd (as it did with my dad), but it tastes very good.

Ingredients You'll Need

1 box Chocolate Cake Mix (I usually try to use a "moist" labeled chocolate mix)
2 egg whites
1 can Diet Coke
1 tub Cool Whip
Vanilla extract - to taste


1. Mix cake mix with egg whites & diet coke

2. Follow cooking directions on the cake mix box - I have made this in both muffin tins for cupcakes (which is good for portion control) & as a whole cake

3. Mix Cool Whip with approximately 1 tsp. vanilla extract (or to taste) - I haven't measured the extract....I just eye ball it

4. When the cake/cupcakes are cooled top with the Cool Whip

5. Enjoy!!
