I was having company and wanted to bake a punch bowl cake. I looked on here for a recipe and to my dismay saw that regular punch bowl cake was a whopping 891 calories for 1/10 serving. I could have fainted!! Here's great punch bowl cake using much healthier options!
- 1 (18 ounce) box yellow cake mix
- 2 (4 ounce) boxes fat-free sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
- 2⁄3 cup egg substitute
- 1 1⁄4 cups diet 7-Up
- 2 (12 ounce) containers fat-free cool whip
- 1 (6 ounce) can maraschino cherries
- 40 ounces canned pineapple (1 can tidbits, 1 can crushed)
- 4 bananas (chopped)
- 2 lbs strawberries (quartered or halfed)
- 4 cups milk (for an even lighter option use skim milk!)
- 1⁄4 cup sugar

- 1. Pour the cake mix into a bowl and add the egg substitute and the Diet 7-up. Mix well.
- 2. Pour the mixture into a cake pan (9x13) and bake for about 35 minutes on 350 degrees. Allow to cool completely.

- 7. Begin to layer in this order pudding, strawberries (fresh and cooked), pineapples, bananas, whipped cream.
- 8. Repeat until ingredients are used (usually makes 3 layers of all ingredients).
