This recipe uses a can of soda instead of the oil, water, and eggs added to packaged cake recipes. Cake comes out surprisingly fluffy and moist with a slight kick to it that people love. Experiment with different flavored sodas for slightly differing tastes.

I loved the chocolate version, but wanted to try something different... so I made it with a french vanilla flavored cake mix, a can of diet mountain dew, and a can of well drained crushed pineapple. Laid the pineapple down in an even layer on the bottom of the pan, then poured the mixture over the top of it. When the cake was done, and cooled, turned it upside down on a platter, and served with fresh strawberries crushed up, and a drizzle of chocolate sauce, with whipped cream. Tasted like I'd slaved for HOURS... SO yummy! Could use sliced bananas in there too, and make it into banana split cake!

This is a great cake! Works great with diet drinks as well. Then the only calories in the cake is in mix. Good topped with light cool whip mixed with a little peanut butter. Cake is extremly moist and therefore keeps longer than tradional cakes. No one knows it was made with a soda unless it is revealed.

This is a quick dessert when you are in need of something sweet but not a whole lot is in your pantry. There are less sugar mixes you can use these days and a variety of diet sodas that you can use as well. To make it go even further, I like to cut the cooled cake into bits and layer it with FF whipped topping and sliced fruit for a quick low-fat trifle.
