Hey Lolis!

If there's one food item that is eternally tied to all Lolita-dom...it is the cake.

If there is one food item that is eternally tied to a growing waistband...it is the cake.

Fortunately, now you can have your cake and eat it too!

1 1/2 cups powdered sugar, sifted
1 cup unbleached flour, sifted
1 1/2 cups egg whites, slightly beaten
1 1/2 tsps cream of tartar
2 tsps pure vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp almond extract
1 c granulated sugar

Preheat oven to 375 F. Mix powdered sugar and flour in a mixing bowl; then set aside. In separate mixing bowl, beat egg whites, cream of tartar, vanilla extract, salt, and almond extract at high speed until well blended. Gradually sprinkle in granulated sugar, 2 tablespoons at a time while beating at high speed. Beat just until sugar is dissolved and egg whites stand in stiff peaks. Do not scrape sides of bowl during beating. Fold in flour mixture, about 1/4 at a time, with a rubber spatula just until flour disappears. Pour mixture in unprepared 10" tube pan. Cut through batter to break large air bubbles with metal spatula,. Bake for 35 minutes. Remove from oven and set upside-down until cooled. Serves about 12.

Weight Watchers Points per serving: Where the formula is Points = (Calories/50) + (Fat/12) - (Fibre/5); 3.5 points. That's awesome!

You can top this baby with fresh sliced strawberries, low fat whipped topping (look for Cool Whip in your local supermarket, it comes in really, REALLY light varieties and still tastes awesome,) raspberries, blueberries, whatever tickles your fancy!

I don't really care for Angel food, but I know a lot of people like it. I do love strawberrys and whipped topping stuff. Actually, any kind of berries are yummy, and generally full of nutrients you don't get from normal foods.

My mom uses weight watchers, and it works the best for her of the different programs she's tried.

XD Well, I've got a bunch more low-fat dessert recipes, so I'll be sure to post them up soon. :D Hopefully you'll find something that you like!

I thought I'd post the point count here, since Weight Watchers is really popular and it's easy for me to calculate. XD I like the program a lot because it's not TOO restrictive - I was on the 6 Week Total Body Makeover until recently. It worked fine, but it almost killed me from food boredom! XD

Ah, I can see how that would happen. My mom has a few WW cookbooks, and the recipes taste pretty good. I'll take a glance through them to see about desserts.

Personally, I'm not much of a dessert person. I really like soups, though.
