  • 1 Entenmann's Fat Free Pound Cake
  • 1 package Sugar Free Jell-O Vanilla Instant Pudding (1 oz. - make sure to choose smaller box)
  • 1 1/4 cups skim milk
  • 1/4 cup Betty Crocker whipped chocolate frosting
  • Cooking Directions

    Make Vanilla pudding and chill for at least 1/2 hour. Line a small loaf pan lengthwise and width wise with long pieces of saran wrap. Put pound cake on its side and slice it lengthwise in half, and then in lengthwise halves again to make 4 even long pieces.

    Lay one layer into the pan. Stir pudding and spread 1/3 over the cake. Repeat twice more. Gently frost the top cake layer. Chill for at least an hour before serving. Refrigerate leftovers.

    Calories per slice: 170

    *Calorie Buster: If you substitute the frosting with a thin layer of sugar free chocolate pudding and the pound cake with a sugar free angel food cake, you'll shave about 630 calories more off the total reduced count, bringing the calories per slice down to 91.
