Ingredients

chocolate cake

  • 1 box (15.25 oz) milk chocolate cake mix do not prepare
  • 2 containers (5.3 oz each) chocolate Greek yogurt
  • 1 cup water

frosting

  • 1 cup 1% milk
  • 1 box (1.4 oz) sugar-free chocolate instant pudding mix
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tub (8 oz) lite Cool Whip thawed

Instructions

  • Heat oven to 350 degrees and spray a 9x13 baking dish with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine dry cake mix, Greek yogurt, and water. Stir together using a wire whisk, wooden spoon, or spatula. Make sure to mix it until it's completely combined. About 1-2 minutes.
  • Evenly spread the cake batter into the prepared baking dish and cook for 25-30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Let cool completely.
  • For the frosting: combine the milk, dry pudding mix, and vanilla extract in a mixing bowl. Use a wire whisk, or handheld beaters, to whip together for about 1-2 minutes. It will thicken up after a couple of minutes.
  • Add the Cool Whip and stir together until combined.
  • Spread over cooled cake and top with sprinkles of choice, or leave plain.
  • Serve right away or you can let it refrigerate before serving. I prefer this cake cold so I always refrigerate it for a few hours before serving. Leftovers will keep well for 1-2 days.

Notes

Each serving is slightly less than 200 calories!
 
Using a sugar-free cake mix is just fine and reduces the calories and sugar even more. I have never personally done it so I can't say for sure on the taste of the cake with a sugar-free cake mix.
