    Diet cake!!!

    Instead of putting oil, eggs, water, etc. in your storebought cake mix, use one 12-oz. can of diet soda!!!
    Use dark sodas (Coke, Pepsi, Dr. Pepper) for chocolate cakes and light (Mt. Dew, Sprite, 7-up) for white or yellow cakes.

    I made one today and used a sugar-free cake mix and a diet Pepsi. It's 120 calories per 1/6th of the cake!
    Delicious!!

    Does it raise as a normal cake and then what do you use for topping? fruit? cool whip? flavored sauces???? Sounds like something to take to a quilt retreat

    One can of soda is the only ingredient! Sounds wacky, right? It is incredibly delicious and moist! At about 120 calories for 1/6th of the cake - eat!

    I like to use "CoolWhip Free" because it's fat-free; but I've used sugar-free frosting from a can. I have dusted it with powered sugar. Anything will work. It might raise slightly less than a regular cake now that I think about. Enjoy!

    I use diet/fat free puddings for toppings...they work great!

    If you use sugar free pudding...use skim milk...and do not use as much milk..it will make the frosting thicker and tastier or you can also add knox gelatin (unflavored) to use less pudding to thicken the pudding up.

    A white or yellow cake with fresh fruit topping sounds good too! Thanks!

    Thanks, for the heads up, you can also use a can of pumpkin and it cuts out the eggs and oil. Makes a really moist cake, great in a yellow cake mix and add a little pk pie spice for extra zing

    one of the cooks on tv said if you add teaspoon of vanilla to the cool whip, it takes away the store bought flavor and makes it taste homemade

    Kroger has them and probably most stores as well. I have found them at the dollar store also.

    I tried the 3 2 1 cake someone posted on here and put blackberries in a spice cake mix. It turned out soooooo good. This is our regular dessert right now. Nothing left to tempt you! One serving.

    What an Awesome recipe!! I just copied it & sent it to my DS & DDIL. Our grandson can't have any sugar in his diet, so I am thinking what a way for him to have a treat!! Thank you so much for sharing with all of us.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Diet Cake

    I have never tried it with a white or yellow cake. Someone told me they used 7-Up in a white cake mix and it was bland. I have only used diet Coke, Dr. Pepper and Diet Pepsi w/lime in a chocolate cake and it is fabulous!! I really watch the time it has been in the oven though and 5 mins. before the box says it's done I start checking it. The texture is wonderful, almost gooey! So good!
