Peachy Keen Cake transforms a boxed cake mix into tasting homemade!!
TGIF! I am so excited that tonight after dinner we are going to go shop for a new camera! I have a light box coming on Saturday and my pictures will soon be much better.
But now it’s time for cake! Well, I am not eating it right now because it is 9:45 am and I have to have some sort of self-control, but I had it last night.
While I try to eat a healthy, nutritious diet on a regular basis, I find that if I don’t indulge myself occasionally then I will end binging, and that is never good. So I usually have dessert once or twice a week. I keep telling myself, “everything in moderation”.
Many years ago, before the internet was so popular, I ran across a recipe for something very similar to this. I am guessing that it was probably on the back of the box of cake mix, but I can’t remember.
Anyway, I searched for a recipe like this after I got internet and I couldn’t find exactly what I wanted, so I came up with this. I named it Peachy Keen Cake with Cool Whip Frosting because I thought it fit well.
My husband really loves this cake. Next time I am going to modify the recipe and make it a little better for us. I will use low-fat yogurt and Cool Whip, applesauce instead of canola oil and egg whites instead of whole eggs.
I am interested to see how that changes the fat and calories. I will post it on this blog.
