Guiltless Kiwi-Strawberry Cake with Strawberries n Creme Topping

Submitted by: GRACIE55113

Introduction

Betcha never thought a taste of heaven could be so, well, guiltless! This moist, tender, and creamy dessert relies on a few "secret" techniques and ingredients in order to achieve the kind of taste and texture ordinarily associated with the use of added fat and sugar in baking.

At just shy of 75 calories per serving (a generous 2" x 2" square, at that!), fat free, sugar free, and with 10% of the RDI of vitamin C (thank you fresh strawberries!), this cake is perfect for those whose sweet tooths would otherwise prevent them from adhering to a calorically-balanced diet.

Note: If you find that you want a bit more rise, or volume, to your cake, you may want to try and use two egg whites instead of one and adjust the amount of soda used accordingly. Negligible calories (1 per serving) will be added.
