    Any cake mix, add only 1 can of diet 7-up . Stir well, pour into rectangle pan (10x12 etc.) and bake using directions on box.. It will not rise as much but tastes like a regular cake. Strawberry is very good with low fat cool whip served on top and fresh strawberries.

    If making a dark cake such as chocolate, add 1 can of diet coke, or any dark colored drink. Follow same routine above.

    For a pineapple cake, use one box of angel food cake mix and add l whole large can of crushed pineapple, juice and all. Bake as directed on the box. I have only used a rectangle pan, but a friend made this in a regular tube pan and only had to cook it a little longer than directed. Use any diet clear drink such as diet 7-up.

    My husband and I love the reduced sugar chocolate cake mix and diet cherry coke or pepsi. I do add 1-2 egg whites to hold it together a little better. It tastes great and works on weight watchers!!!

    Thank you for these recipes!!!

    I'm going to try the chocolate/cherry coke today. I've made the pineapple/Angel food recipe and added some walnuts and dried cranberries for color.

    Made the chocolate/diet coke cake for the first time last week. I was kind of chewy and fell apart a lot. I put some sugar free Cool whip on it and it was good for dessert, better than no cake at all. Going to try it again adding the egg whites as suggested above, DH and I love to have dessert at night but really shouldn't eat the regular stuff with so many sugar and fat calories. May in Jersey

    You can enhance this same recipe with a box (regular size) of sugar-free INSTANT pudding mix to the cake mix and diet 7-up or coke. For instance, yellow or white cake mix, sugar-free pudding mix of choice -- vanilla or lemon, and diet 7-up; OR swiss chocolate, sugar-free chocolate pudding mix, and diet Coke.

    I follow Weight Watchers and this recipe is a hit there, I do add 2 egg whites to the cake mix and soda it does make it a tad bit better and doesnt add any extra fat or calories.
    If you like pumpkin ..
    1 boxed spice cake mix
    add 1- 15 oz can of pumpkin (PLAIN) and 2 egg whites, 1/2 cup water and a teaspoon of pumkin pie spice. This is so good especially this time of the year. I make it in a muffin tin w/o papers.

    Thanks! I certainly will try it. I eat plain pumpkin as a vegetable sometimes. I'll also try the egg whites in the other recipes. Do you beat the egg whites and then fold them in, or do you just add the whites to the cake mix and other ingredients?
