Cherry Chocolate Cake

I was highly intrigued by a post on pinterest about 2 point chocolate cupcakes (based on Weight Watchers).  Basically, you just add diet coke to chocolate cake mix and voila!  You’ve got low point cakes!

In my quest to live a healthier life, I’m really focusing on cutting out aspartame, and right now am detoxing from my big diet coke addiction.  So, I decided to improvise with some Zevia which is a zero calorie soda made from Stevia  instead of sugar or artificial sweeteners. 

I was going to pick up some Zevia colas to make the cake with, but then realized that Black Cherry would give it a nice flavour, so went with it instead.

The result?  Pure AMAZING!  It is quite simply a chocolate cherry party in your mouth.  Moist, rich and decadent – this is a winner in my books.  The only problem is not eating the whole cake!
1.25 cans of Black Cherry Zevia (bonus – you get the extra 3/4 of the can to drink!)
Box of your favourite chocolate cake mix (I used the one pictured)

Preheat oven to 325
Empty cake mix into pan
Empty 1 and 1/4 cans of Black Cherry Zevia into pan
Stir until all the mix is dissolved
Bake in oven for 30 mins

(While it was very good straight out of the oven, I preferred it once it had cooled!)

1600 calories for full mix
Simply divide by number of cake slices or cupcakes that you make – I did 10 slices of cake which made each piece 160 calories (although I ate 6 pieces…so there’s that.)
