Skinny Funfetti Cake is light, moist and so delicious! Greek yogurt replaces the oil and eggs in this cake resulting in a healthier, lighter cake. This version has all the flavors of original Funfetti Cake but with fewer calories and sugar!

Skinny Funfetti Cake is a cake you need in your life! Especially, when you’re having one of “those” days, but you want to stay on track of your calories. Those days are the kind of days I CRAVE sugar. I guess when I’m a stress ball sugar is what I go for. But when I’m trying to lose a few pounds, like now, it can be a dangerous thing. That’s where this lovely little cake comes in handy. 😀 You guys, this cake is so delicious, and each piece is roughly around 200 calories. So you can indulge in a slice and not have to feel guilty at all. 

Greek yogurt replaces the oil and eggs in this Skinny Funfetti Cake to make it healthier, extra moist and SO delicious! It was super easy to make and really really good. If you’re not on a diet or care about cutting back on sugar feel free to use regular ingredients instead of the sugar-free. But I do suggest making it this way with the Greek yogurt. It’s a new trick I’m sure I’ll start using a lot when I make box cake mixes!

 

I’ve seen a lot of controversy online about calling recipes ‘skinny’ so I thought I’d give my two cents about the subject. I absolutely think there is nothing wrong with calling a recipe skinny. When that word is used, like I’m using today, all it’s doing is letting people know it’s a lighter version of an original recipe. These skinny recipes are usually lower in fat and sugar and are replaced by different ingredients. That’s pretty much it. Nothing to get all worked up about. 😉 

Okay, so stepping off my little soapbox now. haha. Make this delicious cake, people! It is one of a kind and I promise you won’t regret one single bite!
