Soda Pop Cake

Although I can't take credit for this cake  ( I seen it on a morning newscast)  I think it is great! I have seen soda pop cakes in the grocery also, I bought one once and was not impressed. I decided to try this as something unusual..with the soda my son likes.

All you do is replace the eggs and oil called for on a regular sized box Cake mix with one 12 oz can of soda.
They used and called for a clear diet soda to cut calories, but I would guess you could use orange/or red pop etc.
I have made two now with a regular sugar (not diet) popular citrus soda, and my son loves it.

I know soda is kind of expensive…but if you consider the cost of eggs and oil, it almost evens out the cost. plus less fat and if you use diet soda…less calories.

They called for icing it with fatfree/sugarfree whip topping..but I just lightly powder sugared the top after it had cooled some and was only slightly warm. It was great with the discounted strawberries on top, that I was lucky enough to pick up at the grocery!

    My mom used to make these cakes with the vanilla flavored box mix and orange crush. They were just delicious. Hmmm…I might have to make one for my nieces sometime soon.

    I have also made this with diet orange pop and added a can of mandarin oranges. Can frost with light cool whip or for a change mix the coolwhip with a box of sugar free vanilla pudding and a bit of the juice drained off the oranges. Great summer desert!

    Oooh, these sound so good! I especially like the sound of the way Garden Spreader’s mom used to make them. Almost like a ‘Dreamsicle Cake’ …kind of… Yum!

    You can also use either a spice cake mix or a carrot cake mix and add a can of diet sprite :) !

    This can easily be done with club soda. No calories and no extra sugar. The cake mix has all the sugar in it that it needs (and then some).
