Mommy and Me Monday- Baking Cakes

Mommy and Me Monday this week is just me and my kids so we stayed home and had a baking day.  I heard of a recipe yesterday at work that sounded so simple Emily could make it all by herself, I only needed to help with the oven.  So I thought, this would be the perfect way to start getting her excited about baking.

First, here is the recipe:
Soda Cake
1 box of cake mix
1 can of soda
(if its a dark cake mix- use a dark soda, light cake mix- light soda)
Bake at the temperature and timing as stated on the box.

It sounds crazy right?!  No eggs, oil, water... just soda.

So we used chocolate cake and Wild Cherry Diet Pepsi.  Yummy!  And think of how many calories we are saving here!!!

It turned out delicious!  Emily loved it and was so proud of herself!


  1. My kids would love to do this. How simple and fun. Did it taste any different?

  2. No! It tasted great! It crumbles easier but it tastes amazing.

  3. I have to try this...looks delicious!!
