Cake as light as a cloud... frosting thick as a blanket... No, we're not hallucinating; we're just talking about our newest creation. This cake is generously frosted with a decadent vanilla topping and ready to party. Yum!
3 tbsp. (about 3/4ths of a 4-serving box) Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant pudding mix
3 tbsp. Splenda No Calorie Sweetener (granulated), or HG Alternative
1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups Cool Whip Free (thawed)
3/4 cup fat-free cream cheese, room temperature
Half of an 18.25-oz. box (about 1 3/4 cups) moist-style white cake mix
3/4 tsp. baking powder
1 cup club soda, room temperature
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup liquid egg whites (about 4 egg whites)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 9" round cake pan with nonstick spray.
To make the topping, in a medium bowl, combine pudding mix, sweetener, and vanilla extract. Add 3 tbsp. cold water and stir vigorously until smooth and slightly thickened. Add Cool Whip and cream cheese, and stir until smooth. Cover and refrigerate.
To make the cake, in a large bowl, thoroughly mix cake mix with baking powder. Add club soda and vanilla extract, and whisk until completely smooth.
Place egg whites in another medium bowl. With a handheld electric mixer set to medium speed, beat until fluffy, 1 - 2 minutes.
Gently but thoroughly fold egg whites into cake mixture. Pour batter into the cake pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 25 minutes.
Once cool, transfer cake to a large plate. Evenly spread with topping. Slice, serve, and enjoy! (Refrigerate leftovers.)
