Healthier Birthday Cake

by Melissa

It’s my birthday today!! Woo hoo! That means I am definitely going to indulge and enjoy the simple things in life! This doesn’t mean that I have to sabotage myself too! Am I going to have a piece of cake (or maybe two)? You bet I am!  But with this healthier birthday cake recipe, I can have my cake and feel good about my decisions! I am also going to go on a celebratory run today to celebrate a new year for me!

Healthier Birthday Cake


  • Two 12-oz bags frozen mixed berries
  • 1 box white cake mix (no pudding)
  • 1 can of diet 7-up or sierra mist (clear soda)


Spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray and place frozen fruit on the bottom. Add dry cake mix over the top. Pour soda slowly over cake mix. DO NOT stir the cake mix and the soda - this will give you a 'crust'. If you stir the two, you will have a cake like topping.

Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 min.

Is this the healthiest cake recipe ever? No, but it sure is delicious and a great swap for a birthday!! I plan on eating this with some low fat cool whip as a topping!

What is your birthday "must have"?
