Weight Watchers 0 Pt Carrot Cake

I want my cake and I want to eat it too. AND I can. The idea came from the Hungry Girl website. I could not find her exact recipe so this is what I came up with. Now the cake does not rise up like normal cakes do. But, the flavor and moistness is awesome. It has the texture of a bread pudding, I did make a light sour cream glaze with pecans for the top and that added 2 points if you use the whole amount I usually only use half so I figure one point. Will list that recipe also.

    I'm not sure how you calculated 0 points but I used the WW app and put the recipe in and you have to include the servings for the whole box, not just one serving, which is only 7, vs. (24 cupcakes = 89 points for 18 oz. pkg of cake mix). My app says these are 4 point muffins.

    just to clear the confusion- people dont get that things are 0 pts if you have 1 serving of something once you have 2 servings at a time its no longer 0 points- even the 0 point soup aren't 0 pts once you eat more than the serving size

    I was so excited when I saw the name on this recipe but if the Nutritional Info listed is correct, according to my handy Weight Watchers Turnaround Pointsfinder Slide, this cake has 4 PTS per serving ... sorry to disappoint anyone, but thought all you fellow Weight Watchers would want to know -- it sure does seem though that it must be a whole lot healthier than a regular piece of cake!

    Amazing! It tasted wonderful and was very moist. I used spice cake mix and added some shredded carrots instead. All the taste, without the guilt. Thank you!
