Low-Fat Orange Creamsicle Cake: there’s nothing more satisfying than this dessert

Total time: 40 Min
Difficulty: Low
By Cookist


White cake mix
1 box (15.25 oz), such as Pillsbury Moist Supreme Classic White
Greek Yogurt
1 container (6 oz) non-fat
Orange juice
1 cup or more
Freshly grated orange zest, optional
Powdered sugar (icing sugar) to decorate, optional

There’s nothing quicker and more satisfying than this three-ingredient cake! It’s low fat because it uses Greek yogurt in place of butter and eggs, and the orange juice added as a liquid gives it a gorgeous orange creamsicle taste. If you want more of an orange kick, add the grated zest of an orange.


In a large mixing bowl, combine cake mix, Greek yogurt and orange juice.  Include the zest of one orange, if desired.


Pour batter into a greased 8 x8 inch square pan.  Bake at 350 F/160 fan/gas mark 4 for around 30-33 minutes. To check if the cake is cooked, insert a skewer or sharp knife into the middle of the cake. If it comes out clean the cake is done. If there is batter sticking to the skewer, it needs longer.


Slice into pieces and garnish with a dusting of powdered sugar and orange peel, if desired.



If you want to garnish with orange peel curls, make sure the orange zest is freshly cut. If it’s been cut for a while it will dry out and won’t stay in shape. Wind the strip of peel around your little finger and hold for a few seconds. Put the curl on the cake. Alternatively, why not decorate the cake with the pretty edible flowers and butterflies you can buy from the baking aisle of your store?
