I wanted to find a fun dessert that was on the healthified side this weekend. I loved when I was a little kid and mom would buy Push-ups from the Schwann’s man so when I saw a recipe for dreamsicle cake, I was all in. Three simple ingredients and it cost under $5. It was so easy to do that Mitchell, who is 7, pretty much ran the show.
1 yellow cake mix (you can use sugar free too)
12 ounces of diet orange pop
Fat free coolwhip
Mix the cake mix and pop into a bowl. Pour into a greased cake pan and bake at 350 degrees for 32-36 minutes. Once cooled, top with coolwhip for “frosting”.
See? I told you a 7 year old could do this one. The cake had good flavor but it was very thin or flat. It didn’t rise like a normal cake. Not sure if I should’ve beat the batter longer or what. It tasted like a push-up and the kids didn’t care about the presentation so I guess it’s a win overall.
