Soda Cake Recipe

All you need to make a soda cake is a box of your favorite cake mix and a 12oz. can of any flavored diet soda! :-D (If you don’t have any cans, just measure out 12oz.)  This is one of the EASIEST cake recipes I know of!  And although it’s hard to call cake or soda “healthy”, it’s definitely a better option than the full eggs & oil recipe!

Soda Cake


  1. Pour cake mix into large mixing bowl.
  2. Dump 12oz. can of diet soda in with cake mix.
  3. *Optional: Add 1-2 egg whites ( for a little extra “fluff”)
  4. Mix together with an electric mixer.
  5. Bake according to directions on the box!


Possible cake mix and soda combinations:

angel or yellow cake + diet orange soda

banana cake mix + diet root beer

cherry chip cake + A& W diet Cream soda

chocolate cake or devils food + diet pepsi

chocolate cake + diet vanilla coke

chocolate cake + diet root beer

devils food + diet wild cherry pepsi

french vanilla cake + diet orange soda

lemon cake mix + diet 7-up

marble cake + diet cream soda

red velvet + diet cherry vanilla Dr. Pepper

spice cake + diet lemon-lime

spice cake + diet orange

white cake + diet ginger ale

yellow cake + diet orange

There is definitely no way around the fact that this frosting is NOT healthy…but it’s out of this world! :)

Vanilla Buttercream Frosting

– 1/2 cup butter, softened

– 3 cups confectioners sugar

– 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

– 2 to 3 tbsp milk

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add vanilla and 1 tbsp. milk.  Continue to add milk until desired consistency is achieved. (I ended up using almost 3 tbsp).

 Enjoy!!! The possibilities are ENDLESS!
