More Cake, Less Guilt

Our friends at discovered a fabulous secret for low-cal, full-flavor cakes and we just can't get enough of it! Start with a cake mix, add a can of diet soda, and bake according to package directions. Voila - less calories (no eggs or oil racking up the tally) and totally great taste!

Check out two of our fabulous recipes that use this trick:

Red Velvet Cake

Carrot Cake

But it doesn't stop there! Last weekend I used Diet Cherry 7-Up in these Cherry Chip Cupcakes and they were fabulous. I could imagine a ton of other good flavor combos, like:

  • Yellow Cake - Diet A&W Cream Soda
  • White Cake - Diet Fresca
  • Dark Chocolate Cake - Diet A&W Root Beer
  • Rainbow Chip - Diet Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper
  • Strawberry - Diet Pepsi Jazz Strawberries and Cream
  • Lemon - Diet 7-Up
  • Spice - Diet Ginger Ale

What sounds good to you?

This is very interesting. I have heard of substituting apple sauce and canned pumpkin but never soda. It would be interesting to know the physics behind this.
