OK…so I have been experimenting with baking cakes lately. I love cake. It is one of my favorite foods. If I could live on cake and not turn out looking like the Pillsbury Doughboy, I would…in a heartbeat. I love the smell of cake. I love the texture of cake. I love the taste of cake. But, as you know eating healthy and cake don’t necessarily mix. Hence the experimenting.
This time around, I mixed a can of A & W diet root beer with a Pillsbury reduced-sugar classic yellow cake mix. As I am writing this, the cake is in the oven and the smell is almost, well, shall I say, orgasmic. Seriously, that is how much I love cake. Have you ever been to Cold Stone Creamery…they have cake batter ice cream there. It is heavenly. I would take that over some ooey gooey chocolatey delicious ice cream any day.
Anyway, I think this cake is going to taste a lot better than the diet Pepsi chocolate cake, which by the way, there are still a couple pieces left. I know the batter tasted great!
And just so you know, cake isn’t the only thing I have been eating lately. My gosh, have you tasted the summer fruits lately…blueberries, cherries, plums, canteloupe, strawberries, blackberries, raspberries, watermelon….oh my, I also LOVE fruit. I actually found out this year that I love plums and I really love fresh blueberries. In fact, I had a cup of blueberries as a dessert after my lunch today.
Well, the buzzer just went off. Time to go try some diet root beer cake….yum-yum!
