Yield

Makes 8 servings

Ingredients

1/2 (18-1/4-ounce) package light yellow cake mix
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
2/3 cup water
2 egg whites
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla, divided
1 package (4-serving size) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding and pie filling mix
1-1/3 cups fat-free (skim) milk

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray. Lightly coat with flour. Set aside.

  3. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake 30 minutes or until cake pulls away from side of pan and springs back when touched lightly in center. Remove from oven. Cool 10 minutes on wire rack. Invert onto serving plate; cool completely.
