  • I made this for Christmas. Everyone like it. Reduced calories further substitutions I made. Cake part: powdered egg whites, S/F pistachio instant pudding. Frosting: S/F pistachio instant pudding , milk-skimmed, cool whip-lite. Both cake mixture & frosting added 1/2 tsp. pistachio flavoring. - 12/30/07

  • I made cupcakes and they turned out great - very good! Only thing was, the bottom of the paper cups became greasy. I, too, would be interested in finding out how to replace the oil with applesauce. - 8/27/07

    You can take a regular box cake mix and add a can of pumpkin to it. It tastes great and you get fiber from the pumpkin. - 8/27/07

  • I actually haven't made this yet, but am looking forward to it. I will probably replace oil with flaxseed to increase my omega-3 and fiber intake. Read label of flaxseed package, should tell you how much to use to replace oil. - 8/10/07

  • Instead of applesauce, try a cup of plain pumpkin puree. It works really well with brownie mix too. - 8/8/07
