Weight Watchers Recipe of The Day: 2-Ingredient Club Soda Cake
Dessert doesn't get much easier than this 2-Ingredient Weight Watchers Club Soda Cake, which turned out better than I expected.
I first learned of Diet Soda Cake years ago at a Weight Watchers meeting. But because I never really liked the taste of artificially sweetened soda and because Splenda gives me a headache, I never pursued it.
Then I heard about using club soda or sparkling water instead of diet soda and thought I'd give it a try.
I enjoy baking from scratch, but don't always have the time or patience for it. That's when I turn to the convenience and reliability of cake mixes.
The Skinny on Weight Watchers Club Soda Cake
I like to use Betty Crocker cupcake mix when baking cakes. They make one little layer instead of two. (You could always use half a regular 2-layer cake mix instead.)
I know from experience when it comes to trying to stay happy, healthy and slim, little cakes are a safer, better bet than big ones, which is why I'm also such a fan of 3-2-1 Microwave mug cake.
I also added a teaspoon of vanilla for good measure. Then spread the finished cooled cake with the thinnest possible layer of chocolate frosting.
This Weight Watchers club soda cake turned out sweet, moist and fluffy. We didn't miss the eggs or oil a bit.
