DCB Recipe #39: 2 Point Cake

I threw dinner in the crockpot (cube steak with mushroom gravy) yesterday morning, came home and heated a few side vegetables, then made this cake for dessert in the microwave in only 10 minutes! It was so wonderful to have a great meal AND dessert ready with so little effort. Bonus: This cake is only 2 Weight Watchers points, so if you are cutting back, you can have this cake and eat it, too!

2 Point Cake

Cake mix of your choice
12 oz. can of diet soda

Mix cake mix and soda together until well combined. (I did this right in the baker so as not to dirty a mixing bowl!)

Bake, uncovered, in the microwave for 10-12 minutes (or in a 9x13 pan, in the oven, as directed on the mix box.)

Yield: 16 servings

P.S. I should be counting points, but I'm not, so I added a little frosting to the still warm cake and it was sooo good!

I have heard of this cake before, as I have a friend who does weight watches, so simple!

Are there any suggestions for the type of diet soda? Will a diet sprite yield a different taste?

Looks easy enough for the nonbaker in me!
