Low Calorie Fruit Cocktail Cake Recipe

This is a delicious fruity cake recipe that can fit nicely into almost-any healthy weight loss plan. You'll need the following ingredients to prepare this ultra-easy cake recipe:

The Recipe Ingredients

1 box of spice cake mix, any brand
1 can of unsweetened or 'no sugar added' fruit cocktail; even better - look for fruit cocktail packed in its natural fruit juices
2 whole eggs
vegetable oil

How to Prepare Our Low Calorie Fruit Cocktail Cake Recipe

Substitute the recommended amount of water on the commercial cake mix box with the fruit cocktail juice. Add only one-half of the amount of recommended vegetable oil. Add the eggs as directed, then mix for the time required on the package. Carefully stir the fruit into the batter.

Bake as directed on the box. Be sure to treat baking pans with cooking spray or dust with oil and flour before adding the batter to prevent sticking.

This cake is so rich that it can be enjoyed without a stitch of frosting. Add a bit of light, fat free topping if desired, or light whipped cream in a can.

You can take this recipe up a notch by adding 1/2 cup of your favorite chopped nuts, drained pineapple tidbits or drained jarred cherries. Walnuts and pecans are delicious in this recipe.

Diet Mandarin Orange Cake Recipe

The Recipe Ingredients

1 orange cake mix, your favorite brand
2 whole eggs
1 can of mandarin oranges in their natural juice
vegetable oil
1 Teaspoon of Orange Extract

How to Prepare Our Diet Mandarin Orange Cake Recipe

Pour the dry mix into a mixing bowl. Add the eggs and only 1/2 of the recommended amount of vegetable oil. Add the orange extract. You can also add a teaspoon of vanilla extract if desired.

Substitute the recommended water for the juice of the mandarin oranges. Beat into a smooth batter as recommended on the cake mix package. Stir in the oranges carefully then bake as directed. Like the fruit cocktail cake, this recipe is moist and rich enough to stand on its own. It's perfect with coffee or tea - or anytime.
