4th of July – Yogurt Cake

Hey warriors! Here is a delish and healthy way to enjoy cake this 4th of July. I call it Yogurt Cake!  It’s light, cool, refreshing and super good! All you need is a white cake mix, egg whites, 2 Greek yogurt cups (flavor of your choice), some water, cool whip and fruit of your choice to decorate the top.

Since the 4th of July is Monday I chose to make a strawberry flag cake. I chose strawberry Greek yogurt for my cake flavor and mixed berry Greek yogurt for my frosting. I created a flag on the top of my cake with strawberries and blackberries.

Start by preheating your oven to 350°. For this cake you’ll want a 9×13 glass pan. Grease it with light cooking spray and set to the side. Mix your white cake mix, 2 egg whites, Greek yogurt cup, a cup and a half of water in a large bowl. Whisk until smooth and pour into your pan. Bake for 25 mins and let it cool completely.

For your “frosting” combine a tub of light Cool Whip and your other Greek yogurt cup. Combine until smooth and keep in the refrigerator until you are ready to “frost” your cake.

While you are waiting for your cake to cool you can cut your fruit. I washed and cut strawberries in half for the stripes of my flag. I used blackberries for the blue area of my flag.

When the cake is cooked, frost it with your cool whip/Greek yogurt mixture. Once your cake is fully frosted use your fruit to create your flag design.

Now you can take this cake to a party and enjoy without the guilt! Be ready to share the recipe – people will ask you for it because it’s that good! Enjoy!

(This cake is easy and the fruit and yogurt can be customized to your liking, have fun with it!)
