Frosted Blackberry Cake Recipe

Frosted Blackberry Cake Recipe

Ann Kelly of Gallatin, Tennessee takes advantage of boxed mixes to bake this moist berry-flavored cake. "My husband and I started watching our fat and sugar intake, so I made several changes to the original recipe to come up with this lighter version," she says. "It's best prepared the day before serving, and it freezes well, too."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:20 servings


  • 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
  • 1 package (1 ounce) sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 package (.3 ounce) sugar-free raspberry gelatin
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/3 cup egg substitute
  • 1 jar (10 ounces) seedless blackberry spreadable fruit
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • ICING:
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fat-free milk


  • 1. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, pudding mix and gelatin. In a small bowl, beat the eggs, egg substitute, spreadable fruit, applesauce and oil. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened.
  • 2. Pour into a 15-in. x 10-in. x 1-in. baking pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 30-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool on a wire rack.
  • 3. In a small bowl, combine icing ingredients until smooth. Spread over cooled cake. Yield: 20 servings.

"I have made this cake several time. With the frosting is just too sweet for my family. I make mine now in a bundt pan without frosting and have tried different flavors- our favorites are peach and strawberry! It's a very easy recipe and very good. Best thing is it is diabetic friendly!"
