I am not on Weight Watchers but I do like a good dessert without all of the calories. I made this tonight for my husband and I used a sugar-free yellow cake mix and SF/FF lemon pudding to make a lemon flavored cake. It turned out moist and yummy. I can certainly tell that it is low-calorie because most of it is just fluff, but it satisfies a craving for sweets.
The Original 7-Up Pistachio Cake recipe is my favorite cake! I can't wait to try this version. <br/>With the regular cake, we add crushed pineapple (a 20 ounce can) ~ drain the can of crushed pineapple well, pressing down on it in the strainer to remove all the liquid. Spread the crushed pineapple over the top of the cake, then cover with the frosting. The pineapple makes it more moist & sweeter. Yummy!

Did not like it..so sorry.
Made this into a trifle for a last minute family gathering. I subbed mountain dew for the sprite, and omitted the pop out of the topping mix. It was delightful, I will be using this for my sweet desires.
I haven't made this version yet, so I'm not going to rate it. I calulated the PointsPlus for this recipe using e-tools, and it's 6 points per serving which is not bad at all! My family LOVES the "regular" version of this cake, so I'm anxious to see their thoughts on this one! Thanks for the tip!
I LOVED this cake. My husband said it would've been better with a different pudding flavor for the frosting and my little sisters didn't like it at all. I made it exactly as directed.
Took to work for a friend's birthday who was on Weight Watchers. Even the non-dieters loved it. Made just as written and it was a cinch. Thanks!
I made this for my BF who loves pistachio ice cream. I wanted show him you can have your sweets but keep them low fat. He LOVED it. Like everyone else said, the cake is very moist and tasted better after sitting in the fridge for a day or two. I might try the icing with another flavor pudding (I don't love pistachio as much as him).
I made cupcakes so I could control portion size. By making cupcakes instead of a cake I had a lot of frosting left over, but that's okay, we'll eat it like a mousse. It's great on it's own. The batter was weird, so thin that I thought this would be a disaster, but no, it was great. The cake is very sweet and satsifying. I made this for friends and they insisted on the recipe. It will be made over and over in my house. I also used sugar free cool whip because my dad is borderline diabetic.
