Healthy Lemon Cake – Only 7 Points for the Whole Thing!

The Lemon Soaked Bread that I made last year inspired this Weight Watchers friendlier, Healthy Lemon cake. With this cake, you can eat the whole thing for only 7 Weight Watchers Smart Points, or you can have half for only 4. I recently posted a response to TBB Asks, about my love language; ‘4 point desserts’ is definitely speaking my love language.

This cake is made with Kodiak Cake mix. The plus side to Kodiak Cake mix is that this mix gives the cake a boost of 7 grams of protein. And honestly, dessert with protein, is a beautiful thing. The slight downside is that baked goods made with Kodiak Cake mix have a distinct Kodiak Cake mix flavor. It’s not a bad taste, but it’s a taste nonetheless.

You can adjust the lemony-ness of this cake by cutting down on the lemon juice or lemon zest. I would also suggest dusting this with cake with powdered sugar, because it gives it that little extra something.

Even since I started Weight Watchers, I’ve been looking for easy ways to eat sweets, that don’t cost me too many points. A friend of mine told me that when she was on Weight Watchers, she ate ice cream every night. She would measure out 1/4 of a cup, and that ‘indulgence’ made her feel good.

I’m a little different, 1/4 of a cup of ice cream is not enough for me. I want to feel like I’m cheating the system. Like I’m really indulging! When I can eat a whole cake, or I can eat healthier versions of things I used to eat, I feel like a food ninja.

And the great thing about Weight Watchers is that on Connect, their online community, there are a lot of people who feel this same way. They make two ingredient bagels for only three points, batches of muffins that you can eat in one sitting for one point, cakes, cookies, you name it, they can make it. They were the inspiration for this cake!

    7 POINTS IN AN ENTIRE CAKE??? This is saving my life right now, you just have no idea. I fell off the wagon big time this week due to anxiety crap going on. I might eat this on Sunday night when my oldest goes back to college after the weekend home.

      The best part about a journey is that you can fall off and get back on again. I always tell myself that it’s a marathon, not a sprint! And the anxiety and depression get me every time. I am such an emotional eater. That’s another reason I need cheater desserts, so I can indulge without getting off track.
