It’s been a long time since we’ve had a Cake Friday, but when I went to a family celebration last week and enjoyed this 2 ingredient cake I just had to share. This Weight Watchers recipe was given to me by my cousin Vicki who has lost nearly 80lbs. I am so proud of her accomplishment and if this cake helped her do it, let’s make some cake.
1 Box cakemix (any flavor)
1 diet soda (dark colored for chocolate cake, light colored for yellow or white cakes)
Stir 1/2 to 3/4 of the diet soda into the cake mix. Bake according to box directions. Cool, and ice with Fat Free Cool Whip if desired.
The texture was a little moister and chewier than a conventional cake, but is a great way to satisfy a sweet tooth. You can also experiment with different flavor combinations. We enjoyed FunFetti cakemix with diet gingerale, but cousin Vicki recommends a chocolate cake mix with orange soda for a fun twist. This is also a great recipe for those who want to make a vegan cake since it has no eggs or dairy in the cake.
