I have some AWESOME news Better Recipes…this year I will be covering the Academy Awards! That’s right, all the glitz, glamor, and, of course, the food! From Wolfgang Puck’s legendary Governor’s Ball menu, to what the stars eat to fit into their Oscar fashion, I will be there to bring it all to you!
I told a few of my friends and the first thing everybody asks is, “What are you going to wear?!” The short answer is…”Eeek, I have no idea!” (Isn’t that wild, even the press has to wear tuxes and ball gowns!) The one thing I do know is, the Oscars are t-minus 38 days away so I have a little time to prepare.
I call this recipe “Red Carpet Ready” Cake because it is a low-fat, low-calorie way to literally have your cake and eat it too! Half of Hollywood is cutting their calories and upping their cardio in anticipation of the big event. This dessert is a guilt-free way to enjoy a sweet treat while still keeping your figure in check.
It is as easy as 3, 2, 1, YUM! Here is how you prepare these individual sized cakes:
Start with a box of angel food cake mix and a box of regular cake mix. I decided to use a Strawberry cake mix for this “Red Carpet” Cake. You can use your favorite flavor!
Combine the two cake mixes in a ziplock bag. You will only use 3 tablespoons at a time to make individual cakes.
Combine 3 tablespoons of the mix with 2 tablespoons of water in a small, microwave-safe bowl.
Microwave for 1 minute and enjoy! I garnished mine with a small dollop of fat-free cool whip and some fresh strawberries. If you follow the new Weight Watchers program, this is only 3 Points Plus!
It’s that easy! All you have to remember is 3, 2, 1…
3 tablespoons mix
2 tablespoons water
1 minute in the microwave
(Now if only fitting into a slinky dress was as easy as 3, 2, 1!)
