Soda Cake

This is just about the easy thing I've ever heard. It's so easy, you don't even need a recipe. Are you ready? Here we go:

Mix together a cake mix and a can of soda. Pour it into a greased cake pan and bake. The end.

And that's it! Seriously! Can you stand it? How awesome is that?? Doesn't matter what kind of cake mix, doesn't matter what kind of soda. (btw, it's 1 1/2 cups of soda, if you're measuring from a large bottle). You just pop it into a 350F oven for about 30 minutes or until it's done. Isn't that fun? The result is a light and fluffy cake that absolutely melts in your mouth, and it's so easy, anyone can do it!
The cake in the photo is a yellow cake mix and a diet orange soda. I mixed a little orange juice and powdered sugar to make a glaze to drizzle over the top. It turned out great! Chris and Claire loved it. You could do a cherry cola with a chocolate cake mix, or a white cake mix with 7 Up, or a spice cake mix with ginger ale. You could even do a sugar free cake. Just use a sugar free cake mix and a diet soda, or even just plain club soda. Simple! With so many possibilities, I'll definitely be trying this one again soon. Which combination would YOU like to try?
