Low Fat Mojito Cake Recipe

Just for a change of pace, I thought I would share a recipe for a cake that I made for the girls at work last week.  They all requested a copy of the recipe.  I guess that means that they liked the cake.  I found the original recipe on the internet, but wanted to make it healthier and lower in fat so I made some adjustments.  Here is my version of the Mojito Cake recipe.


1 box (18 oz.) white cake mix
4 eggs
1 small box sugar free lemon jello
1 small box sugar free lime jello
3/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
3/4 cup water

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Spray bundt cake pan with Pam.  Mix above ingredients together on low speed until blended. Mix 2 minutes on medium speed.  Pour batter into pan and bake according to package directions or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean.  Leave the cake in the pan and set aside on a cooling rack for 20 minutes.  Using a wooden skewer or chopstick, poke holes in the cake.


2 Tbs rum
1 Tbs. Creme d'menthe
1/2 cup lime juice
2 cups powdered sugar

In a one-cup glass measuring cup, mix together rum and creme d'menthe.  Add enough lime juice to the measuring cup to measure 1/2 cup of liquid.  In a medium bowl, combine the lime juice mixture with 2 cups of powdered sugar.  Mix well.  Pour glaze mixture over the holes and allow to absorb into the cake. 

Invert the cake onto a cake dish.  Let cool completely and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
