Or if I’m really lucky, one that uses whole, unrefined sugars and flours. But that’s rare.
But people like those cake mixes so much! It’s hard to please a crowd with unrefined tastebuds.
So here’s a compromise I made for a very special someone’s birthday. He likes key lime pie, a lot. Now he likes key lime cake, too.
1 box of angel food cake
1 large lime or two small
1 container of key-lime-flavored yogurt
1/3 cup healthy whipped topping (try a soy type or Troo Whip)
-Prepare the angel food cake as directed, but add in some fresh lime zest and a little squeeze of juice at the end. The cake should still taste light and fluffy with just a hint of lime flavor, most of which comes from the topping
-Let cake cool, of course. But once it cools completely, you can begin making the whipped yogurt topping. It’s as simple as mixign the yogurt and whipped topping together, drizzling all over the cake, serving chilled, and if you like, sprinkling with fresh zest or coconut shreds.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did.
