50 Calorie Cupcake


Every year for Easter I have a dessert buffet table. I try to make sure I have one dessert that is low in calories. This year I made angel food cupcakes topped with a pineapple pudding frosting. These cupcakes are so addicting I think they are going to be my new go-to dessert for my brunch parties.
 Ingredients
1 box Angel Food (I used Betty Crocker)
1 box (1.5 oz.) sugar free vanilla pudding
1 can (20oz) crushed pineapple in real fruit juice; do not drain
1 container (8 oz.) Cool Whip 
Directions
Make the angel food cake as directed on the box. Fill your cupcake liners half full; if you fill it more than halfway they will over flow.
One box made about 47 cupcakes. Bake at 325 for 7-10 minutes or until the top turns golden brown.
Mix the crushed pineapple and juice with the vanilla pudding powder. Once combined, fold in the cool whip. Make sure to cool your cupcakes before you frost them, and only frost them when you are ready to serve/eat.
