Note for all Big Lots shoppers:

The Nutrisystem Microwavable Chocolate Cake?

Complete and total CRAP. ugh. Tastes like Blech.

You're far better off (taste and cost-wise) following this recipe:

Reduced Sugar Devil's Food Cake Mix
1 1/4 c water (as on box)
replace oil with 1/2 c applesauce, add 1 tbsp oil
4 egg whites (instead of 3 whole eggs)
OPTIONAL: 4-8 tbsp Benefiber, for additional nutritional value

Bake as stated on box. Tastes exactly the same. Want to mix it up a bit? Used a flavored applesauce, like cinnamon or strawberry.

I bought the Nutrisystem cake mix, one serving, for $1 at Big Lots. 160 calories. GRRROOOOSSSS.

I bought the Reduced Sugar Pillsbury cake mix at Albertson's during one of their 10 for $10 specials, so $1 for the box, 12 servings, 180 calories each (as prepared above, not by box directions).

Dress it up with 1/2 tbsp Smuckers caramel sauce (25 calories) OR 1/2 tbsp Smuckers Sugar Free Hot Fudge Topping (23 calories) and 1/2 c sliced strawberries (25 calories), and you've got a decadent, deelish dessert for about 230 calories.

Wanna cut the calories more? Cut the cake into 15 pieces rather than 12--each piece is now only 145 calories, and you can do the same add-on's as above for under 200 calories.

200 calorie serving shown here. MORE than enough. And SO good.
