Perfect for Valentine's Day, Christmas, or any special occasion, this southern classic never goes out of style. Take a short cup by using cake mix to effortlessly prepare a beautiful and deliciously rich luscious cake.

    • 1 egg
    • 3 egg whites

CREAM CHEESE ICING

Makes 16 servings

    • 1 (8-ounce) package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
    • 3 tablespoons butter
    • 1 (16-ounce) box confectioners' sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese and butter until smooth. Add confectioners' sugar and beat until light. Add vanilla.
 

Terrific Tidbit:
For another fantastic dessert option, turn this cake into a trifle by layering cake, cream cheese icing, and nonfat whipped topping in a trifle or glass bowl.  One time, the layers fell apart and I turned it into a trifle and now I make the cake both ways and can't decide which is the most popular!
