Vegan. Two ingredients. Low fat. Can you get any better? If you want a vanilla cake or any other cake that's light in colour, do the same thing but use a lemon lime soda or clear birch beer. I suppose you could get creative with this, using cherry, orange, or any other flavoured soda, but this I'll leave that up to you:)

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (18 1/4 ounce) package chocolate cake mix
  • 1 14 cups diet cola


  1. Mix dry cake mix with soda. Don't pay any attention to adding oil, egg, etc.
  2. Pour into floured cake pans, Bundt pan, muffin tins, etc.
  3. Bake according to directions on box.

I bake a lot with my children, sometimes I let them choose the cake/cookie that they want to make. This time when I asked my 4 year old which cake they want to make, he told me a soda cake! So I told him there is no such thing as a soda cake. Then I decided, you know what you never know what you can find on recipezaar. And yup, I was right! This cake was yummy! Really easy to make, and very moist. It kept it's shape very well, but crumbled when I sliced them. However, since this is a low fat cake, this recipe is a real keeper, you would never guess this is a lowfat cake, tastes just like the real thing! Thanks Aerobicon for sharing this great recipe!

Works JUST as well as using water/oil/eggs, and less calories, but not necessarily healthy. Until I find a cake mix that doesn't have hydrogenated oils, I won't be making this again (that is, after the four times I've made it in the past month!). 7up works well with a white cake mix - it rises great.

This is really easy and good for being low fat. I have made it several times in the past. It was shared with me as a WW recipe being low in points.
