Cream Soda Cake {Kids In The Kitchen}

On Family Day weekend it was too cold to go outside so I asked Princess Destructo what we should do. "Let's bake cookies mommy!"  After scouring the pantry for leftover Christmas baking items, I came up with two cake mixes and little else.  I had heard from friends that chocolate cake could be made with diet cola instead of the standard 3 eggs + oil + milk stated on the package. Since I had white cake mixes and didn't want to give my kid chemicals in diet pop, I decided to use cream soda.  The result was a fluffy cake that crumbled a bit more than the ones using the usual recipe, I wasn't silly enough to try and get it out of the pan to cool completely.  We ate it warm with CREAM CHEESE ICING and frozen strawberries.  I would not try this with a cake I wanted to use for a fancy occasion or one that needed to be decorated, but it was tasty enough to please a three year old and a grumpy hubby.  The next time I try this it will be with the other white cake mix in my pantry and a can of sprite.

Cream Soda Cake

  • 1 can of cream soda
  • 1 white cake mix


What I did:
In a large bowl, pour the contents of your cream soda can over the dry cake mix.  Stir just enough to break up the lumps, over mixing will deflate the bubbles.

Grease a 9 x 13 cake pan or 2 - 8 x 8 pans.

Bake 25 minutes in a preheated 325 degree oven .
