The boys don’t get SunnyD very often. Ted bought them a jug of Orange-Peach the other day. I looked at it sitting the fridge, taking up space. Thinking about how sweet it is and not really wanting the boys to drink a lot of it…I decided to make a cake using it.
The other day, I repinned a cake made with a mix and diet soda from our sweet Marsha Baker, A Better Baker That’s how I was going to make! I did, and it turned out great! The SunnyD was not very strong..just a hint of it was enough for us. I made whipped cream flavored with peach jello and it was soooo good! I sent Ted to the store, since Reid has the flu, to get sugar free jello in peach and orange flavors. Here’s a simple, yet yummy, cake!
1 cake mix, any flavor, I used white
12 oz SunnyD, any flavor
2 teaspoons meringue powder, this is what I used or 1-2 beaten egg whites
Preheat oven to 350. Spray 8×11 pan with cooking spray.
Stir meringue powder in the cake mix. Add SunnyD, starting with 10 oz and add more if needed. I whisked it by hand for 2 minutes. Put in pan. Cook for 15 minutes. Turn pan around. Cook another 10-15 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle, comes out clean. Cool in pan on rack.
For a fast topping for 2-4 pieces. Increase amounts for more servings.
Whip 1/2 cup heavy cream with 1 Tablespoon and 1 teaspoon peach or orange, jello until peaked. What could be easier? Use fat free cool whip in place of heavy cream.
