Low Fat Flavorful Cake

McCormick.com is a perfect site for recipes. They have recipes to compliment all of their spices and seasonings. You should check it out. A few years back I found a Low Fat Vanilla Cake on the site. I tried to find it and was unsuccessful. The thing that I remember about the cake was it used egg whites and had no oil. The cake is really good. Serve it up with fresh fruit and light whip cream and you have a yummy lower fat dessert.

Low Fat Cinnamon Vanilla Cake
inspired by recipe found on McCormick.com

1 yellow boxed cake mix
1 1/3 cup water
1/3 cup Captain Morgan Rum
3 egg whites
a few shakes cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla extract
seeds from half a vanilla bean

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Dump cake mix into mixing bowl. Add water and rum and mix. Add egg whites one by one and mix. Add vanilla and cinnamon and mix. Spray your cake pan and pour the batter in. Bake for 35 or until toothpick comes out clean. Allow cake to cool.

When ready to serve top with fresh sliced strawberries and light whipped cream. Enjoy! You won't even miss the fat.
