Creamsickle Cake

I have friends who have diabetes and am always looking for a good dessert to feed them, but also one that won't put them in a coma or worse.   I came across this recipe online and decided to try it.   Turned out pretty good.   The original recipe called for a standard cake mix, but I switched it for a Pillsbury Sugar Free cake mix.   Instead of plain orange juice I used a orange-pineapple-banana juice mix, instead of plain yogurt I used a sugar free tropical fruit flavored one and a few drops of pineapple extract.   Sure turned out good too!  And since there were no eggs in it, I could lick the batter off the bowl!  That was tasty too.  Hope you enjoy!

1 box (15.25 oz) Pillsbury Sugar Free Yellow Cake Mix
1 container (6 oz) non-fat Greek yogurt, plain or flavored
1 cup orange juice (any other juice would work)
1/2 tsp pineapple extract, no reason you couldn't use other flavoring that suit the juice you are using
powdered sugar, optional

In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, Greek yogurt, extract or other flavoring and juice.  Pour batter into a greased 8 x8 inch square pan.  Bake at 350 degrees for 30-33 minutes.  Slice into 9 pieces.  Garnish with a dusting of powdered sugar if desired.

If you want to do it using a regular cake mix, then the skies the limit for flavors!   Chocolate cake mix with cherry juice and cherry yogurt.   Spice cake mix with apple juice and cheesecake yogurt.  Lemon cake mix with lemon yogurt and lemonade.
