Introduction: Cake With Soda

Make a delcious fat free cake with materials you can buy at any local supermart. Easy as One-two!

Step 1: Purchase Cake Mix From Store

You can use any basic boxed cake mix to do this. Any flavor is fine, just make sure to pay attention to later steps.

Step 2: Buy Soda

I recommend buying a 12 pack of canned DIET soda (to get that fat-freeness). To prevent any soda flavor from entering the cake, use Diet Sprite or something of similar type. However, if you are a chocolate cake fan, using Diet Coke or Pepsi would be fine, as the chocolate masks the Pepsi taste.

Step 3: Ignore!

Ignore the directions on the box to add oil, water, and/or eggs and instead just add ONE can of soda.

Step 4: Bake

Bake for the amount of time at the temperature of the box's instructions.

Step 5: Enjoy!

What you should have now is a delicious, fudgy cake, that is also fat free and does not need frosting, because of its sheer delciousness.

    I only have two liter bottles of coke and gingerale,how many ounce's do I need 12oz???

    I would be careful using diet fizzy as it may contain the sweetner "aspartame" which turns into formaldehyde when heated. Check it out on Google using key words aspartame, formaldehyde, heat. Normal sugary fizzy should be ok

    Our bodies naturally produce formaldehyde, and it's literally in everything around us, naturally, from nuts to cheese to meat to the soil we touch and the air we breathe. Getting worried over nothing will cause premature aging.

    Diet fizzy isn't good for you but diabetics like myself can't have normal fizzy so we have diet fizzy.
    You need to consume a huge amount as aspartame for your body to have the formaldehyde affect.

    I'm from nz also.

    this is a must try

    Ive made french vanilla with cream soda, DELICIOUS! Spice cake with ginger ale, AWESOME. Lemon cake with sprite, SUPERB! Strawberry cake and cream soda. VERY GOOD! AND Chocolate with Cherry Dr Pepper! OUT OF THIS WORLD!

    I'd like to know if you can put this type of cake in cup cake cake containers. I've done it with the eggs and oil.

    I mixed the cake & soda pop in bowl then filled my cupcake tins. Worked fine :-)

    why would u wanna mask the soda flavor besides that diet crap rots u more than regular sugar.

    My Boy Scout troop does this all of the time!  It works awesome, and in my opinion, it actually tastes better, too.

    cool, my mom told me about this. the perfect part is that you can eat the batter because there are no raw eggs!

    Super yummy - thick brownie like consistency. I used a French Vanilla cake mix(the one with pudding in the mix) and a 7-up. Correct in saying that it is not low calorie, but much lower in fat and cholesteral than adding 3 eggs and 1/4 cup of oil to the mix.  i can't wait to try root beer with a spice or carrot cake!! - you could do a poke cake with this(poke holes in top of warm cake and pour over cream, sweetened milk, juice or jello mixed with 1/3 c water!) I may try that too.... And I am gonna make a couple of them with Monster's for my halloween party!
     

    As a member of WeightWatchers, I have heard several ladies in my classes recommend this as a terrific way to get less calories in a cake -- sort of like having your cake and eating it too.

    Then why not just use carbonated water? It doesnt taste like anything. Or does the soda have something in it?

    I'm glad someone shared the concept of the soda cake here, but there are some serious problems with some of the claims being made. Yes, soda cakes work, and are tasty, but as Strobe said, using diet soda doesn't mean "fat free." It means "lower in calories and fat." 99% of sodas have no fat in them - diet or not. I don't know how many people I've talked to throughout my life that think most hard candies and sodas are high in fat. Repeat after me, "SUGAR HAS NO FAT IN IT." That doesn't mean that too much sugar isn't bad for you, but you can't equate high calories with high fat - those are two different things. Also, even if you use diet soda, nearly all cake mixes have a fairly substantial amount of fat in them - about 5g per serving. And they are usually between 150-200 calories per serving IN THE DRY MIX. One exception is Angel Food cake, which is naturally fat-free and comparatively lower in calories than most other types of cake. However, you DON'T USE OIL OR EGGS in Angel Food cake, so there's no need for the diet soda trick (unless you just want the flavor). The real benefit you get by using diet soda instead of eggs and oil it that it has LESS calories (eggs are 70 a piece), LESS fat (most veg oils are very high in fat, and eggs are 4.5g a pop), and LESS cholesterol (eggs have high cholesterol, as well as veg oil, but some veg oils actually have a lot of good cholesterol). So, that being said, I do recommend the process, just don't think it's going to be fat-free or extremely low in calories, without being a special kind of cake.
