Hey y’all, I hope you’re ready for a seriously yummy recipe today! And it’s SKINNY! Yes, skinny!!
The mission to make this Skinny Funfetti Cake started a couple of weeks ago when I joined in this crazy thing called a “Diet Bet.” Have you heard of it before? It’s an app that you use to track weight-loss over 4 weeks time. You participate in it with a group of people and everyone forks over 25 dollars as part of the “bet.” If you successfully lose 4% of your body weight by the time the four weeks is over, you get your 25 dollars back. PLUS, if there is anyone in your group that DOES NOT lose the weight, their money gets split up between the winners!
Well, I really want to get my money back. And hey, other people’s money sounds good to me, too!
So I’ve been eating a lot better and keeping track of what I’m eating, too. The one thing I’ve really struggled giving up though is my sweets! So I decided to find a way to make some skinny versions of my favorite desserts. And what’s more fun that Funfetti Cake?! Did I mention it’s made with Greek yogurt?!
Yep, there’s Greek yogurt in there, and let me tell ya. This cake is SO moist and fluffy! I’m going to make more of my cakes using Greek yogurt from now on. Plus the yogurt adds in protein, too. So it’s ALMOST good for you, right? Almost. 😉
Skinny Funfetti Cake
- 1 (15.25 oz) box funfetti cake mix
- 1 cup fat free vanilla Greek yogurt
- 1 cup water
- 1 small box sugar free instant vanilla pudding mix
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 (8 oz) container fat free whipped topping, thawed
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 13x10 inch baking pan with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix, Greek yogurt, and water. Mix vigorously for 1 minute. Pour mixture into prepared baking pan and bake in the preheated oven according to directions on box. Mine was ready after about 25 minutes. Cool completely on a wire rack.
- In a medium sized bowl, stir together the pudding mix, milk, and vanilla extract until thickened. Fold in the whipped topping. Spread frosting over the top of cooled cake and add sprinkles if desired. Enjoy!
This was a wonderful option for me for a sweet dessert. I lost 70# and still have 30 to go but struggling to find new recipes. I think I’ve found a few with you.
Great cake, thank you!
Does this need to be refrigerated?
Yes, with the whipped cream in the frosting it’s a good idea to refrigerate leftovers.
This cake is great for those sweet cravings! The only thing I changed is splitting the Vanilla yogurt with half plain Greek yogurt and same with the milk in the frosting. I wanted it to pierce the sweet a bit and it did the trick.
Tried and the cake came out super dense.
OMG yes!!!! I love funfetti cake but rarely have it because I know its not the best for me. This will give me an excuse to have some!
Wow! For 200 calories per slice I’ll eat this with no guilt! Looks really good and healthy!
I was looking for a lighter funfetti cake for a birthday and this one came out perfect. Love the lighter swaps.
Funfetti cakes always look like a party to me, they scream happy and celebration.
This is such a fun-looking cake! I can’t wait to try this out for our Easter party.
How many calories in this without the frosting? Btw i love it.
Hi! If I’m using 8-inch round cake pans how much would I adjust the baking times?
How many servings is the whole cake?
Hi Lori, it’s 12 servings.
How about 2 round cake pans for this cake?
Yes that would work!
Do you think this can be made in a Bundt cake pan?
Yes I think that would work fine!
This is exactly what I need too! Was just thinking about how I like to bake but need to find some better, less calories, recipes. And this looks like something light but tasty. Will give it a go 😀
