A Low Cal Cake

The other night my Alpha Delta Kappa teacher group had movie night. We had so much fun watching Mama Mia on a big screen TV in the home of one of our members.

I am trying out new lower calorie recipes, and made this Best Ever Peanut Butter Cake to take. It turned out great, and no one could believe that it is a Weight Watchers recipe!
I made this recipe once before several years ago, and remember everyone liking it.

Here are the ingredients:

BEST EVER PEANUT BUTTER CAKE serves 20
Devils Food cake mix
10 oz diet pepsi (guess you could use Diet Coke)
1 egg white
10 Tbls ff sweetened condensed milk or 7 oz.
2 Tbls peanut butter
8 oz ff cool whip
7 fun size butter finger bars-I just used one butterfinger candy bar for the whole cake. (I was afraid the extras in the package of mini size ones would be too much of a temptation!

Mix cake mix egg and soda according to cake box. Bake in floured 9x13 pan. A few minutes before cake is to be done combine sweetened condensed milk and peanut butter in saucepan. Cook and stir on low until creamy and warm. Poke the top of cake with knife and pour peanut butter mix over top. Spread on cake making sure it goes into holes. Sprinkle 1/2 of the chopped candy bars on top. Cool completely. Cover with cool whip and sprinkle remaining butterfingers on top. Keep in
refrigerator. If you cut in 24 it goes to 3 points

Yield:
"4 points"

Diane, I can't believe that cake is Weight Watchers. Yum, it sounds out of this world. I am going to make that. Thank you for a great tip on a lovely dessert.

It does seem like time is just running out with each day. I say we stop and enjoy the days more by doing things that give us a sort of time out from our daily obligations. My friend used to say, "Seize the day"

Hugs...Jeanne

Sounds delicious, Diane and only 4 points. I would need to take out my 4 point portion and one for J and share the rest with the neighbors or I would be into it all the time, till it was gone!
