Okay, so legendary is an exaggeration, but this method of baking a light cake seems to be quite popular out there on the world wide web.
My coworker introduced me to the concept of reducing the fat and calories in a cake by replacing the eggs and oil called for on the box with diet soda. Intrigued, I set out on the hunt and found this recipe on ehow.com.
My favorite thing about this cake recipe is that I’m not wasting my precious cage free eggs and expensive oil on a treat.
Even better, these cupcakes turned out moist and tender. It’s truly as simple as taking your favorite boxed cake mix and adding a 12 ounce can of soda. Mix thoroughly, then bake in the oven according to the directions on the box.
These cupcakes literally cost me two dollars to make. That’s what I call a treat!
