REC--Make a cake mix healthy (tnt)

With the following changes, you can dramatically reduce the fat and cholesterol in a box cake mix. Follow the instructions on the box, except:
  • Substitute 3/4 cup egg substitute OR 3 egg whites for the whole eggs
  • Increase water to 1 3/4 cups
  • Omit oil (yes, all of it!)
  • Add 2 Tbsp. flour
  • Bake about 5 minutes longer
The end result is a very moist, tender cake. It's impossible to tell the difference!

-A balanced diet is a cookie in each hand
