Cherry Angel Food Cake

There is a recipe that I see on Weight Watchers that I've always wanted to try. And since I'm having my parents and my cousin, Marc, over for dinner tomorrow night, it seems like the best time to try it. Now, you can use any type of pie filling for this cake, but you do have to find the Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake that requires you to only add water.

Cherry Angel Food Cake
Serves 12

1 box (16 ounces) Betty Crocker Angel Food Cake
1 can (15 ounces) lite Cherry Pie Filling (or apple or peach)
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

Preheat oven to 350°F. Place cake mix, pie filling and cocoa powder in a large bowl. Fill the pie filling can halfway with cold water and add to bowl. Mix well with a wooden spoon. Pour batter into an ungreased 13- x 9-inch baking pan. Bake until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean, about 40 minutes. Set the cake upside down on a wire rack to cool. Once cool, run a knife around the edges of the pan.

(For those of you counting, it's 3 points per serving.)
