After we finished dinner, I really wanted something sweet. Hmmmm.... the question was what though. I decided on microwave cake. (Yes, microwave! It is super fast--hence the reason for the "speedy" in the title--and still tastes fabulous!) I used sugar free cake mix and Fiber One yogurt (thus the name for the "healthy"). Our microwave/ yogurt cake was (1) delicious, (2) super fast with very few dishes to clean, and (3) did not use the oven--thus preventing the house from becoming hotter. This is definitely a winner! :)
|yum... is your mouth watering yet?|
1/2 c. sugar free cake mix (Pillsbury has a SF variety)
1/4 t. baking powder
4 oz. light yogurt (Fiber One is exactly this size)
1 T. egg beaters
1 T. water
Stir the cake mix and baking powder together. Beat (I just whipped it by hand) the yogurt, egg beater and water into the cake mix. Lightly spray 2 small microwave safe dishes (I used Pyrex bowls that were 1 c. But it was iffy as to overflowing or not. I might just recommend using mugs.) with cooking spray. Divide the cake mix evenly. Microwave individually on High for 90 seconds each. (I had a microwave safe plate under the Pyrex dish.) Let sit for a few minutes before eating. Top with frosting, fresh fruit slices, etc (cool whip and/ or yogurt) if desired. Prepare to have a happy tummy! :)
A FEW NOTES:
We ate ours without frosting. When I make this again, instead of using a 4 oz Fiber One yogurt, I think I am going to try a 6 oz size but then reserve 2 T of yogurt. And use that by it self or mixed with a little bit of sugar free cool whip for the frosting.
I used yellow cake mix, peach flavor yogurt and sprinkled in some pumpkin pie spice. Delicious! I also want to try chocolate cake mix with strawberry yogurt. The options are endless. Some of the creative Yoplait flavors will be fun to experiment with!
Because I was afraid of it overflowing, I stopped it after every 30 seconds. If you use a larger container/ mug, you could just let it go the whole time. Start/stop makes it heavier because I interrupted the rising.
