Lemon Berry Cobbler Cake

I'm hosting a late Mother's Day/early Father's Day picnic on Memorial Day this year. So we'll be thanking parents AND veterans for their service on Monday! My husband and I just started Weight Watchers (WW) again about 2 weeks ago, so I wanted to try to plan a menu that was delicious for everyone, but also lighter for those of us that want healthier options.
I'm really excited about the entire menu, (make sure to follow on Instagram to see what else we cook!) but I'm definitely most excited about this dessert! And it was absolutely mandatory to share it with all of you because it's so delicious! Even if you're not concerned with calories, macros or points - trust me - you're going to want to make this cake! This recipe is what The Rural Legend is all about - easy healthy recipes that don't taste like health food!
If you have used WW, you may be familiar with a cake mix hack that uses Greek yogurt and water to make a deliciously moist cake that's pretty low in points. I'm using that here, but with a twist!
Bright lemon cake melts into tart juicy berries, and it's all topped off with fluffy whipped cream. I'm making mine with red and blue berries for a patriotic treat, but you can use any fruit you want! Let's get baking!
how many points per piece?
1/14 of the cake - 5 WW points per piece for blue, purple and green plans
1/18 of the cake - 4 WW points per piece for blue, purple and green plans
Lemon Berry Cobbler Cake
downloadable recipe at the bottom of the page
lemon cake mix - I used Betty Crocker Super Moist Lemon
1 C plain fat free greek yogurt
1 C water
3 C fruit of your choice - can be fresh or frozen
optional - fat free whipped cream ( 0 points for 2T!)
optional - more fresh fruit as garnish
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Mix together the cake mix, yogurt and water.
In a greased 9x13 pan, spread fruit evenly.
Pour cake mix over the berries and spread evenly.
Bake for 50 minutes, or until the cake is cooked through. It will be slightly soft from the moisture of the fruit, but it should no longer be gooey.
Serve warm, topped with whipped cream and fruit.
I plan to top my Memorial Day cake with fresh strawberries and blueberries to make it extra festive. You could also sprinkle freeze dried raspberries on top for a pop of color and little crunch for 0 points. My mom makes an unbelievable peach and red raspberry cobbler over the summer with allll the butter. I think I may have to try that fruit combination with this recipe, because I bet it's going to rival hers!
I hope you find some inspiration here and get to spend the holiday weekend enjoying the sunshine and the company of friends and family. To all my friends and followers who served, thank you!!! Make sure to subscribe at the bottom of the page so you never miss an opportunity to be inspired!
