CAKE! Or as we like to call it: "CAKE".
So I found a wonderful cake recipe in my 1978 WW Hot Stuff Recipe Pamphlet, and got to work on it right away.
Strawberry Corny "Cake"
1 cup skim milk
2 tbsp artificial sweetener
1 ounce cornmeal
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup strawberries
Heat milk & sweetener and bring just to a boil in saucepan. Sprinkle cornmeal into milk gradually, and cook 2-3 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Remove from heat and cool. Stir in vanilla and egg. Fold in strawberries and turn into a baking dish. Bake at 375 for 40 minutes.
Here's a tip: don't bother pulling out your 9x13 pan. This cake is just a tad bit smaller than that. Luckily, I had a very teeny, tiny cake pan (thank you, Pyrex). For reference, here is a picture of the entire cake (before I baked it) sitting next to my cell phone.
The good news is - you get to eat the entire thing! Yep. It is only one serving. Yeeehaw!
Ladies and gentlemen. Every so often, I stumble upon a Retro WW recipe that truly blows me away. It is so good, it makes me want to teach the world to sing in perfect harmony. A recipe like this spans the generations and brings us all together! Modern day Weight Watchers girls can enjoy this entire cake for a mere 6 PointsPlus! Retro WW gals can rest assured that this is a perfectly legal way to eat cake. We can all hold hands and rejoice.
Cake is good. Cake is corny. Cake is our friend.
