Mom saw this on Pinterest. I think everyone can agree that Pinterest is an amazing place for ideas!

She also read somewhere that this is actually a weight watchers recipe and less than 100 calories.

These muffins are also healthier because you don’t add the oil. This recipe just takes one box of cake mix and one can of pumpkin.

It’s very simple…

All you do is mix the can of pinking and cake mix together then fill muffin cups and bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Dad put a smear of cream cheese on his and loved it!

Next time she’s going to try a box of spice cake mix.

Give it a go and enjoy a healthy and delicious snack!

Thanks for reading. 🙂

Baby’s First Birthday Cake

The joy of seeing your baby eat his first cake is priceless! I know that you can give them basically anything to eat once they’ve hit the age of one but that didn’t mean I wanted to! I made a carrot, pineapple, applesauce cake! It came out very moist and yummy! Seriously, I really liked it! I topped it with a low sugar cream cheese frosting which he seemed to totally love!

Kyler’s Birthday Carrot–Pineapple-Applesauce Cake

1 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose unbleached flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon salt

2 eggs (or 1/2 cup prepared egg substitute)

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup brown sugar (can use less)

1/2 cup white sugar (can use less)

1 1/2 cups finely grated (about 4 large)

One- 8 oz can of crushed pineapple, undrained

1/4 cup applesauce
Start by preheating the oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 inc square or 7 x 11 inch oblong cake pan.
Then Sift together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt into a large bowl.

In another bowl, beat the eggs with the oil, then blend in the brown and white sugars.

In a third bowl, combine the carrots, pineapple with its juice, and applesauce.

Beat the egg-oil mixture into the dry ingredients. When well blended, stir in the carrot-pineapple mixture. Spoon the batter into the prepared pan and bake on the middle shelf of the oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the cake is risen and a cake tester inserted in the center comes out dry.

Then add Cream Cheese Frosting of your choice!

He loves to share! He tried giving Daddy and I both some of his delicious cake, too sweet! 🙂
