I have a dear friend who will be celebrating her birthday this Wednesday. She goes with me to WW so I understand her struggle with eating the right things. I am a big blog follower to my follow blogging friends. So as I was trying to think of something to make for my friends birthday, I ran across a recipe that sounded easy and yummy. It was on my WW leaders blog and it is called Pineapple/Orange Cream cake. It is 4 points and I think she would enjoy that. So before I just make it and give it to her, I thought I better make one to see if it was really that good. So that's what I did last night. The recipe called for a yellow cake mix. I went down stairs to my food storage to retrieve one and noticed, the newest one I had was 6 years old. Wow goes to show you how often I bake...LOL Not knowing if the cake mix was still good I made it with apprehension. The cake was a big hit and the pieces are pretty big too. The thing I loved the most about the cake was how moist it was. It has mayo in it and I never had heard that mayo in a cake would be so good. Who knew! Not me! Well anyway I wish I didn't enjoy it as much as I did (would be easier to not eat too much, that way.) I only had 1 piece as my family enjoyed 2 and 3 pieces. It makes 18 serving so of course I don't want all those extra pieces in my house. Thank goodness I have neighbors that I like enough to share my yummy moist cake with. So at 9 o'clock I had my husband cut and serve 7 of those piece of cake to my friends. Still leaving TOO much in my fridge. Note to self: get rid of more cake in the morning.
I don't think it will be as hard on me to NOT eat it only because now my daily points are getting smaller and I don't want to waste them on a piece of cake. But I hope the voices in my head will not be calling me to the refrigerator today. I guess Wednesday I will be making another cake for my friends birthday. Thank you Kris for posting such a great cake on your blog.
