penny's StoryI got this recipe off the dLife website sounds great to me so thought I'd share it. I have subsituted the SUGAR FREE cake mix instead of a regular cake mix which they used in their recipe. I saved about 40 calories/serving, and saved about 14g of carbs per serving, using the SUGAR FREE cake mix ...that's quite a difference!
(Also, those watching their cholesterol intake might use this recipe...there's no oil or eggs!)
***You can always use the yellow SUGAR-FREE cake mix instead of chocolate and subsitute diet sprite or diet 7-up or diet orange crush. Top with a fruit or berry combo ***
devil's food sugar-free cake mix (16 oz.) (available in pillsbury brand)
diet soda (i.e.: diet coke, coke zero with vanilla or cherry, diet root beer, diet dr. pepper, diet pepsi, etc.

I did try this using a regular cake mix (devil's food) and a coke zero with vanilla...I really wasn't particularly fond of the taste...but I guess it is ok...just not one of my favorites...:(
sorry...maybe if I'd added the whipped topping and fruit It would have been much better...I dunno...

What a great cake! I made it with a devils food cake mix from Aldi's and a can of their diet cola. My Bridge group loved it, saying how chocolatey the cake was. Confectioner's sugar sifted over it was the only "icing." Just delish! Will repeat! Bridge Group tested and approved!
