WW Diet Rite Chocolate Cake

 

I have been busy baking and cooking today!   I love the cooler weather so the kitchen doesn’t heat up and the house smells wonderful with all the foods being prepared.  Ted loves chocolate, so I decided to make a weight watchers Diet Rite Chocolate Cake for him since he has been so patient and tried all the other things I have been cooking,   This particular recipe, which combines a Betty Crocker Super Moist chocolate cake mix and 12 ounces of diet rite, no-calorie soda, contains 160 calories and 3 grams of fat per slice. The original recipe on the box contains 228 calories and 10 grams of fat. Not a bad reduction on calories but no loss on the taste.  The cake mixes with any diet coke are always so moist, every time!   Continue reading “WW Diet Rite Chocolate Cake”
