An option for baking which completely surprised me was crock pot cakes. I had always thought of a crock pot as only being used for slow cooking soups, but in fact it can be used for so much more. One recipe I found is for this yummy Banana Cream Crock Pot Upside Down Cake. The result is a warm gooey cake dripping with sauce and deliciousness.
3 Egg whites
1 cup Mashed banana
2 1/2 cups Water, divided
1 box (18 ounce) Yellow cake mix - Dry,
(do not make as directed on box)
1 box (3 1/2 ounce) Banana cream pudding mix, dry
Oven Temp ~ High

Pan Type ~ Crock Pot
Did you say you're on a diet?
No desserts for 20 years?
Do you pass the cake and candy sections
With some heartfelt sighs and tears?
Go ahead !! Bake those gooey
Sticky sweet forbidden things.
But first put on your jogging outfit.
Your tennis shoes and exercise fling.
Run in place while stirring;
Time your cakes with jumping jacks.
Ten deep knee bends between ingredients.
Use that kitchen for a workout track.
And when you're out of breath and panting.
Pot holders around your prize.
Jog to the nearest 90 pound neighbor
And leave her your 1000 calorie surprise!
