    List of Ingredients

    Just wanted to share that you can make single servings, or smaller cakes, using 2 parts cake mix to 1 part diet soda. Most cake mixes have approximately 3 cups mix, and 1/4 cup is what they usually list as a serving on the NIs on the back. This makes one fairly large cupcake, either baked or microwaved. 1 1/2 cup mix and 1/2 can pop will make an 8x8 mix.

    To make the cobblers, same proportions. Sprinkle on however much mix you want and use 1/2 that amount in pop, just don't stir.

    I keep yellow cake, white cake, and devils food in baggies or a canister to make quick desserts whenever I want to and in any size I want to.

    Haystacks: 1/8 cup choc chips to 1/2 cup
    Fiber 1: makes 3 haystacks at 1 pt each

    Small cakes: use 2 parts cake mix without pudding to 1 part soda pop. (The NI on the back of the box is probably for about cup dry mix, so you can calculate points based on how much you use.)

    Cobblers: 2 parts cake mix to 1 part soda pop; sprinkle mix on top of fruit, drizzle pop on top, do NOT stir.

    Cupcakes: cup cake mix to 1/8 cup soda pop: makes 1 lg cupcake at 3-4 points each

    Small cupcake: 2 TBL cake mix to 1 TBL soda pop (or pumpkin, applesauce, or yogurt): 2 points each. Can be made in a dixie cup and microwaved.

    Pudding: 1 heaping TBL sf/ff pudding mix to cup milk: 1 serving at 1.5 points

    Brownies: 2 TBL brownie mix and 1 TBL flavored yogurt: 3 points for regular mixes, 2 points for most ff mixes, 1 point if you use the Betty Crocker Carb Control brownie mix.

    Single Better Than Sex Cake: In a Dixie cup, make 2 TBL Devils food cake mix, 1 TBL cola (or pumpkin, applesauce, or yogurt); Poke a few holes, and drizzle on a scant TBL caramel ice cream topping diluted with a little milk; add a few Heath bits or 4-5 choc chips; cool, top with FF cool whip. About 3.5 points

    5-6 choc chip cookies: cup RF Bisquick; 1 rounded Tbl ff sf pudding; 1/8 cup Splenda; 1 heaping TBL applesauce; 1/8 cup egg beaters; 1/8 cup choc chips (or other flavored chips).
