Glazed blueberry cake

One of my favs. I've used chopped carrots to make a carrot cake before, and I've used mashed bananas. Use whatever fruit you want! I'm sure chocolate chips would work too!

  • 1 box reduced sugar yellow cake mix
  • 2 tbsp fat free mayo
  • ¼ cup No Sugar Added apple sauce
  • 3 egg beaters (.75 cups)
  • 1 cup water
  • 50g blueberries (about 1/3 cup)
  • dash of cinnamon
  • splash of vanilla extract
Glaze:
  • 1/2 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tbsp water
  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Mix all ingredients except blueberries in a bowl with a mixer until blended, scraping the sides as needed.
  3. Stir in blueberries, and pour into a 8x12 baking dish coated in cooking spray.
  4. Bake 35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
  5. Cool COMPLETELY. You may even want to refrigerate it for a bit. If it's not completely cooled before you glaze it, the warm cake will melt/absorb the glaze.
  6. Mix the water and powdered sugar. Use a spoon or a basting brush to glaze the cake. Place under a fan or directly in the refrigerator to solidify glaze. Store in the fridge.
