This recipe is AMAZING! I mean amazing! I can’t tell you just how much everyone loved this cake. It’s absurdly ridiculous how easy it is to make and what a great outcome it has. Now don’t get me wrong it’s not a pretty cake but it makes up for it in low Weight Watchers and the flavor. Oh my goodness! This is a quick and easy cake you brag about.
It’s also very adaptable. You can use any fruit, and any flavor of cake. I would suggest something neutral if you are using fruit but you could do a cinnamon cake with apples, or a chocolate cake with dark cherries. Just about anything is a go here!!
Oh most importantly it’s 4 weight watchers points when you divide the cake into 12 pieces! It’s easiest to this this once the cake has cooled!
- 1 can diet sprite/7-up
- 1 box Golden Vanilla Cake Mix (Should be 160 calories per serving)
- ¾ cup sliced hulled strawberries –Frozen
- ½ cup pitted cherries –Frozen
- ½ cup blueberries –Frozen
- ½ tbsp. ground cinnamon
- 2 packets Truvia
- Butter Spray or Cooking Spray
- Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees
- To a 9×13 baking dish spray with cooking spray then add all frozen berries. Make sure to disperse them equally around the pan mixing up berries so that each slice will have a little bit of each type of berry.
- Next sprinkle Truvia over berries equally
- Cover berries with dry boxed cake mix and once again dispersing equally
- Once the cake mix is covering the berries pour the diet soda over the cake mix. Cover the entire cake the best you can but do not add extra soda if you can’t cover everything. *Please note that it’s OK if the soda does not cover the entire cake perfectly because it will make the cake nice and crumbly in certain spots, like a crumb cake. (This isn’t a bad thing)*
- Once the cake is covered in soda cover the baking dish with tin foil and bake at 350 degree for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes remove the tin foil and bake another 45 minutes to 1 hour. (Mine took 1 hour) After 45 minutes if you cake isn’t done check it every 5 minutes until it’s as your desired consistency.
I woke up early one morning starving! I wanted breakfast but I really wanted breakfast from McDonalds. I looked to see how many Weight Watchers points were in a McDonalds Bacon Egg and Cheese Biscuit. WOW it was about 1/3 of my day in points. So I decided to look around online to see what I could find that would be points friendly and would also be good.
This recipe fit the bill, quick, easy and oh my goodness so delicious! I really loved it. It reminded me of the holidays as if I was eating apple pie. I never would have thought to put applesauce in my oatmeal but I would do it over and over again because it was just that good!! This recipe is fantastic and for only 3 Weight Watchers PointsPlus
- 3 tablespoons oatmeal, uncooked or 1 packet
- 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
- 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Mix all ingredients together.
- Microwave for 1-2 minutes.

This is a great recipe, its super easy and a nice way to use up left over chicken. Usually each month I will put four pounds of chicken breast in the oven and cook it up, then use it in dishes like this throughout the month. It’s simple and less expensive than buying canned chicken.
This recipe is very good for you and figure friendly. If you are on Weight Watchers Points Plus this recipe is 6 points if you can get 8 servings out of it. I think we could have gotten 12 servings for 4 points.
I think the next time I make this recipe I will make a half recipe. Honestly it just made more than we can handle but I can see eating this for lunch for the remainder of the week or even adding to freezer bread to make homemade Hot Pockets. That would be delicious too you would just need to add more cheese when you make your pockets!
