The Easiest, No-Egg Cake You'll Ever Make

My family is already very familiar with this recipe. As I've mentioned in earlier posts, I have a nephew with egg allergies so this cake has been made several times already. I made it again this weekend.


any cake mix you want
any 12-ounce can of pop you want

It's really this easy--Spray your pan with cooking spray. Mix the cake mix and the pop in a bowl. Pour into a greased cake pan and bake at the temp and time listed on the box. And there it is!

Something about the carbonation in the pop causes the cake to rise. So I guess that means any carbonated beverage would work. (Beer cake, anyone? Champagne? Seltzer water?) You can have lots of fun mixing pop flavors with cake flavors. You can easily give a yellow cake a little orange flavoring with your favorite orange pop.

If you'd like to make this cake diabetic-friendly as well, use a diet soda and frost with a "light" version of Cool Whip.

One little warning--this cake won't hold together quite as well as a regular cake will. That's why I usually leave it in the pan and serve it right from there. It also works really well for cupcakes since you don't have to "unmold" those from the muffin cups until you're ready to eat!
