A 1 point piece o’ cake! (with an update)

This is a treat from Linda. She's been telling me for a while now about this really easy, really tasty, 1 point dessert. For those of you who know nothing about Weight Watchers, they have a point system for foods that is related to calories. A 1 point dessert is really good.

UPDATE: A careful reader checked this on her point calculator and thinks that this dessert may be a 2 pointer. I don't have a point calculator but the cake mix calls for eggs and oil to make the cake. You don't add either of those to to this 1 point version. I'm guessing that that may be the problem. However, I did want to keep you informed…

Start with a very chocolatey cake mix. Put 3 tablespoons of the mix in a small bowl. Add 2 tablespoons of water. Mix it well with a fork. Cook it in the microwave for 45 seconds (give or take). 

Top the finished bowl of cake with a bit of hot Hershey's Syrup. I heat my chocolate syrup for 20 seconds. Eaten hot, this is like a volcano cake. Linda was right – this is really really good!

  1. Thank You! for the WW 1 pt. dessert — I’m a WW and my sweet tooth has been wickedly showing itself lately, a real struggle. Now I’m armed and ready for a treat!

  2. Do you know where the recipe came from? When I use the point calculator, I come up with 2 pts- without the hershey syrup! I want it anyway, just can’t figure out how it can be one point. Sandy
