I always joked with Brenda that there was nothing diet or healthy about this recipes, but it was soooooo good. Ways to make a "better" cake: - Mix a chocolate cake mix with a box or prepared sugar-free chocolate pudding (do the same for strawberry or vanilla cakes) - Instead of using oil, substitute applesauce (same as oil amount) or butterbuds (3 Tbsp liquid butterbuds) - Instead of using eggs, substitute egg beaters or egg whites
