I've stopped posting much about my weight loss progress. For a second there I fell off the wagon, but rest assured I'm back at it. Shedding pounds, feeling better and practicing patience. It's not easy. I struggle everyday, but little things, like this recipe certainly help.
My mother-in-law gave me this Weight Watchers Cupcake recipe: "if you're ever in the mood for something sweet...wink wink" I'm always in that kind of a mood. So, obviously I went straight to the store, bought a box of chocolate cake mix, a can of pumpkin and went to town.
If you make mini-cupcakes, which I suggest for portion control, these end up being about 60 calories each. Not too shabby.
1 box of cake mix (I used chocolate)
1 15oz can of pumpkin
1/4c water (you could add an egg white or two if you'd like)
set oven for 350 and follow box directions from there.
I can't lie, they certainly aren't the real deal, but they don't suck. And it's better for you than the alternative, so I won't complain.
For dessert tonight, I crumbled one and mixed in some chopped strawberries. Yummers.
