Chocolate cupcakes, beewagon style...

1 cake mix - 12 cupcake size
(do not follow box directions, instead add the following)
1 teaspoon coconut oil or whatever oil you use
1 cup coffee
1 container egg beaters
bake at 350 degrees 21 minutes

Frost with some fat free cool whip
and you have a 
95 calorie cupcake!

They are moist and delicious.  I froze the rest so I can take one out any time and dab some topping and have a treat.  It's nice to have cake in the house!  Cake makes me happy.  Very happy.  But you already know that!

Boy howdy yesterday I did my 30 minutes of water jogging just as this woman I didn't know got in the pool so we started talking and I kept jogging, well I did it for another 30 minutes without thinking about it.  It felt soooooo good!  And she was a very nice lady from Toronto.  

Today is my grocery day but I don't need much.  I already have cake!  Have a lovely day my friends... you know I will too!


  1. Chatting whilst you're exercising makes it so much easier doesn't it? :)

  2. I have chocolate cake mix and whipped cream, but no egg beaters. Well, actually I have never had egg beaters. I do have some pineapple upside down cake mix and applesauce though so I could make those yummy cupcakes! Yessiree!

    I baked chicken last night with steamed broccoli, cauliflower and carrots. Oh, and some blackeyed peas, too. I haven't had baked chicken in a month or more, what with the holidays and all. It was deelish!

    Enjoy your Sunday! big hugs xoxo

  3. I subbed mightily last night with Creme brûlée It was sooo good.

    Will be in WPB this very day! See ya soon!!!

    Big hugs, honey...

  4. Bee, Put the coffeepot on, I'll be right over. :):) Well a girl can dream can't she? That is a good treat for so few calories. Great job. Hope your day is a fun one.xoxo,Susie

  5. " a very nice lady from Toronto", a Canadian Hooray.
    Good morning Bee. It's great seeing that you and I are still loosing weight. I'm so happy even though I'm very stressful at the moment I'm still working at eating the proper foods. My mom is so happy of me loosing this weight.
    I like with your cake ( cupcake ) Have to go my lovely friend. See you soon.


  6. That looks good! I've never used the coconut oil. Been tempted to. Do you like it?

  7. Well there you go if you crave chocolate cupcakes. I don't, but this is a great option for folks that have a sweet tooth. You're sure learned all the tricks to have a healthy eating plan and have delicious food including desserts. That rocks.

    Have a terrific day. Big hugs from sunny but COLD California. :)

  8. Never cooked with egg beaters, I make breakfast but not much beyond that. You put the whole carton in, isn't that like 6 or 8 eggs ? I use coconut oil too.
    I have tried a few cake mix cupcakes but they seem to be so sweet to me for me. Maybe the cake mixes themselves are too sweet for me ?
    That said your cupcakes look wonderful and the addition of coffee must be the secret.
    I think I might try this out one day.
    Like I commented before, I love clicking on your blog because I never know what I will be reading that day.

  9. Looks like a great treat for only 95 calories. Yummy.

    Wonderful that you had someone to talk to while you were exercising!

    Hope your Sunday is peaceful and relaxing.

  10. I wonder how'd I make these without the box mix?

  11. Thud.

    Coffee? Cupcakes?
