This Raspberry Lemon Cake is the perfect summer dessert!
At only 3 points per serving you don’t have to waste a lot of points on this dessert.
The lemon zest in this recipe gives it such a delicious and fresh flavor.
To keep this dessert low in points I used Pillsbury sugar free classic yellow cake mix. It’s 38 points for the whole box.
Instead of using eggs or oil I used diet 7UP. You can use any diet lemon/lime soda for this recipe.
Making the cake batter is as simple as adding the cake mix to a bowl with 12 ounces of diet 7UP.
Then you use a hand held mixer for two minutes on medium speed.
Once the cake batter was mixed I added 1 cup of raspberries and the zest from half of a lemon.
I stirred it together then added it to a 9×13 baking pan sprayed with no-stick cooking spray.
Next it was off to the oven to bake. You want to make sure to let the cake cool completely before adding the Cool Whip.
To give this cake an extra kick of lemon I added lemon zest to the Cool Whip. When the cake was cooled I spread the Cool Whip over the cake.
Cool Whip may not be a traditional frosting, but I like it because it’s so low in points. I use the fat-free Cool Whip. It’s only 14 points for the 8 ounce tub.
If you plan on eating this cake for a couple of days I would add the Cool Whip before serving it each time. The Cool Whip will stay good in the fridge.
As far as the cake I would be sure to put plastic wrap over it so it doesn’t get dried out.
You can enjoy this cake for only 3 points per slice. That’s for blue, green and purple!
