Sweet and tart Skinny Raspberry Lemonade Cake instantly puts you in the mood for warm weather and outdoor picnics! Growing up, my granny made a delicious Pink Lemonade Cake that was one of my favorites.  Of course, that was before I even cared about counting calories or knew how many grams of fat are in buttercream frosting as her cake was covered in it!  I took my granny’s original recipe and experimented in the kitchen with a few different ingredients and came up with this delicious recipe for a Skinny Raspberry Lemonade cake that has the same great taste but is lighter in calories and fat grams.  The secret to this recipe is using a 6 ounce container of Yoplait Light Raspberry Lemonade flavored yogurt.  By using the yogurt, I didn’t have to use any oil or eggs, only egg whites which cuts down on fat grams and calories.  Enjoy!
