    I made this dessert yesterday. Well, I sort of made it. I couldnt find fat free pound cake anywhere, so I bought fat free angel food cake. I also bought low sugar raspberry jelly instead of the spreadable fruit and it had lower fat, calories and carbs. The dessert was indeed very yummy! But somebody please tell me – where do you get fat free pound cake???

    This recipe was very easy to put together and very tasty. I over beat my egg whites a little before adding the brown sugar, so they looked a little lumpy, but were otherwise delicious! Beaglemom–Entenmann’s makes a cake called “Golden Loaf” which is fat free and very much like pound cake in taste and texture, it’s delicious. Also, Sarah Lee makes a “light” version of poundcake (frozen), which is also very good if you don’t mind the extra fat and calories.
